During World War II, R.A.F. Debden Airfield, England, was home to the 4th Fighter Group, 8th Air Force, from September 1942 to September 1945. Vanguard Yanks of the 71st, 121st and 133rd R.A.F. Eagle Squadrons traded R.A.F. blues for U.S. Army olives to become the 4th Fighter Group. Spitfires, Thunderbolts; later long-ranging Mustangs were to help a dedicated4th Fighter Group achieve the most victories over enemy aircraft in the entire U.S. Army Air Force - 1016 enemy aircraft destroyed.
In remembrance of our 128 comrades who were not to see the war's end, we the survivors humbly dedicate this memorial.
