Many years ago in the company of heroes. L to R: COLONEL ART JEFFREY, COLONEL JACK ILFREY, COLONEL HUB ZEMKE, the Squadron Adjutant, and GENERAL ROBIN OLDS.

Colonel ARTHUR JEFFREY
After arriving in Europe, Arthur Jeffrey became the top-scoring P-38 Ace with the 479th Fighter Group, and later became the Group’s leading scorer after they converted to P-51’s. He went on to command the 434th Fighter Group. Arthur Jeffrey had the distinction of being the first pilot to shoot down the Luftwaffe’s jet-rocket aircraft – the Me-163. He flew 82 combat missions and was credited with 14 aerial victories.

Colonel JACK ILFREY
Posted to North Africa with the 94th Fighter Group, Jack Ilfrey lost a belly tank transiting from England and force-landed at Lisbon. He avoided internment by conning some fuel and making an unauthorised take-off. He became one of the early P-38 Aces, and historians now say the very first P-38 Ace. Back in England in 1944 he commanded the 79th P-38 Squadron, 20th Fighter Group, at Kingscliffe, and ended his two-tour war with 8 victories.

Colonel HUB ZEMKE
Best known as leader of the legendary Zemke’s Wolfpack, Hub Zemke’s famous 56th Fighter Group was the top-scoring Fighter Group in the European Theater of Operations. Zemke pioneered the use of the P-38 ‘Droop Snoot’ as a bomb aiming aircraft which led the bomb-loaded P-47’s on to the target with great accuracy and success. He later commanded the 479th Fighter Group P-38’s. One of the outstanding fighter leaders of the war, Hub Zemke’s personal tally was 17 3/4 victories.

Brigadier General ROBIN OLDS
After leaving West Point, Robin Olds was posted to 479th Fighter Group in England. Flying P-38’s he was involved in heavy bomber escort duties and fighter sweeps, gaining 9 victories in the Lightning. He later commanded 434 Squadron flying P-51s and by the war end was credited with 24 victories, of which 13 were in the air. He later flew the F-4C Phantom (“SCAT XXVII”) in the Vietnam War gaining 4 aerial victories.
