Whilst building the Nuthampstead (www.station131.co.uk) website I was fortunate enough to correspond with both veterans and relatives of those that served with the 55th during the Second World War.  There are a number of excellent websites with information on the 55th, but none that concentrated solely on the group, or more importantly on the men who served with the group.  I hope this website will, in time, become a fitting tribute to all those men, who served in, or in support of, the 55th Fighter Group. As is probably evident, I'm still building the site and am regularly posting information and images, as they get donated, or submitted. I would like to thank all those that have contributed and aided me so far, including Karen Esberger, Frank and Velma Birtciel, Bob Littlefield, Stan Richardson, Ted Hoffman, Chet Patterson, Ed Giller, Bill Staggs,  Bud and Thelma Loring, Jack Cunnick, John Kaithern, Russ Blowers, Neil Webster, John and Martha Ann McKee, Don Hemphill and Marilyn Hladky, Don Gifford, Bill Willis, Dick Gibbs, Howard Rhodes, Turk Eliades, George 'Ike' Eichorn, Glenn 'Andy' Anderson, Ray Larko, Bill Laubner, Jerry Leinweber, Bill Staggs, Clifford Williams, Jack Feller, Dick Baribault, Harold Hall, Oliver Griswold, Charles Eder, Dudley and Julie Amoss, Bill Woock, Duane and Sylvia Wikholm, James Hoffman, Jeff Florentine, Bekah Hale, Bill Kamego, Dan Henry, Chip and Nikki Hailey, Dominick McCutcheon, Erin Trevino, Matt Frase, Terry Murray, Patricia Achramowicz, Geoff McHarg, Bill McHarg, Ken Underwood Jr., Jim Neufeglise, Peggy Gillette Mercado, Bill Spiecker, Marcia Sittel, Bruce Hancock, Carole Olshavsky, Norrol Smith, The Fluty Family (incl.
