804714/64 - HISTORY IN THE SKY: 354th Pioneer Mustang Fighter Group


By 354th Association, Edited by Capt Arthur F Brown - Reprint by Taylor Publishing Company, 1992

Transferred to RAF Boxted in Essex on 13 November 1943. At RAF Boxted, the 354th provided long-range escort for USAAF heavy bombers and received a Distinguished Unit Citation for its activities up to mid-May 1944, during which the 354th was instrumental in the development of the P-51 for use in long-range missions to escort heavy bombers on raids deep into enemy territory. As a result, priority for the Mustang was shifted from the Ninth to the Eighth Air Force, which eventually converted 14 of its 15 Fighter Groups to the P-51. The 354th also gained the distinction of destroying more enemy aircraft in aerial combat than any other USAAF fighter group (701 enemy aircraft).
