The Memphis Belle
Memphis Belle by Philip West
three years of continuous air combat the 91st Bombardment
Group "The Ragged Irregulars" were based
at Bassingbourn in England. They flew 340 missions with honor
and bravery, over occupied Europe and bore such B-17 legends
as "Memphis Belle", "Shoo Shoo Baby",
"General Ike" and "Nine 'O' Nine".
On this day, however, the Memphis Belle is going to have to
wait for the snow to be clear before it can depart on yet
another dangerous mission over enemy territory. In the meantime,
to enable the “Memphis Belle” to leave
at the earliest opportunity when the weather clears, groundcrew
carry on with their maintenance work in support of a crew
and aircraft they all look upon with affection and admiration.
