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

Still looking for more information about my Dad. Captain Edward E. Hunt, KIA France 8 November 1944. 354th Pioneer Mustangs. Would love to have a pic of his P-51D, the Ready Edy (not a typo, he really used one 'd'). Everyone on here has been amazingly helpful & I've been so blessed to have stumbled on this forum on my 1st try at researching him in 2009. Thank you all for what you do for those of us who didn't grow up with the great stories.

Remembering Edy Hunt 353FS/354FG, member of D Flight whose young life was given in service to the USAAF of his Country on 8 Nov 44 in the crash of his P-51 Mustang on a foggy French hillside. He rests in peace in an American cemetery in France and we remember him warmly with thoughts also today of his daughter and granddaughter, Renee & Corey.

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

Hi all--It's been a long time since I've been on here but just thought I would pass this along. I was contacted by the Mayor of one of the villages in France that was closest to my Dads (Captain Edward E. Hunt) crash site. it seems that that are honoring him this year with a memorial and the naming of a street after him. The event goes on for a week and includes a trip to the crash site, a trip to the cemetery & the laying of a wreath. I've been sent pictures of plane parts that were taken off of the mountain and am not too sure what to make of that. Anyway I've been invited to attend, along with my daughter. So after quite a bit of research verifying all of this it turns out that we're going to France in September. I'm beyond excited as this is something I never thought I would have a chance to do. Only really knowing anything at all about my Dad since 2009 this is such an opportunity for us which I'm sure will include lots of tears. Still would love to have any other information that might be out there. You all on this forum have been so amazing and so helpful & I can't begin to tell you what all of this has meant to me & my daughter to know so much more about my Dad. Thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heat. Who knew my first little post would lead here?

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

Great news !

Can you tell us where is the crashsite, and which village will commemorate him ?

As far as in know, the crash place often cited is extracted from the MACR and is only based of the testimony of another pilot that heard in Mericourt that two Frenchmen had reported a crash, probably a Mustang, about 15 miles from the town, with the pilot killed.

Not a very precise location, and not a 100% reliable one.

The village is La Neuveville Sous Montfort & the ceremony will be 27 September as it stands now. There were two spellings in the paperwork I have. Mericourt & Mirecourt. Mericourt was in the MACR & Mirecourt was in the official report of his death & burial. I've looked up both sites & one is close to the village the other is quite a distance.

Just incase no one has seen this. Scroll down towards the bottom 'Ready Edy'.
