Re: Captain Edward E. Hunt KIA Nov. 8, 1944

Great to speak with you Renee!! What wonderful memories from D Flight of the 353FS, the Fighting Cobras!! Just recently, on Feb. 15th we remembered Edy's flt. leader, Wallace "Bud" Emmer, who died 75 years ago at Dulag Luft Wetzlar.


I hope that you find, or can see a photo of Edy's flt. jacket....it would be wonderful if you can connect with the present owner. Perhaps a member of this Forum can help you spread the word to other aviation forums and the word will get to the right person. Were Edy's dog tags ever recovered from the crash site?


Also, we found the son of SSgt Fred Borst, the groundcrew of the 353FS who painted many of the noseart for the squadron's a/c. I sent messages to the son, but never received a reply. Has anyone encountered the son of 353FS groundcrew Fred Borst? There are many families of the 353FS that would love to see more info about the noseart painted by Fred Borst. Any help appreciated!!
