P-38 White Lightning Christmas cards

P-38 White Lightning Christmas cards
The English winter of 1943-44 was a tough time for many Americans.
Having arrived during April 1943, at a picturesque Station 131 Nuthampstead, Hertfordshire, they soon learned about the vagaries of the sometimes – inhospitable British climate.
As though the struggle with engine problems on the P-38 Lightnings were not enough,
the ground crews had to cope with atrocious cold and damp dawns in order to prepare aircraft for the almost daily escort missions. Today however, whilst other airfields further towards the coast are clearing fast, the 55th Fighter Group is firmly grounded.
As the prospect of today’s inactivity dawns on the tired and cold ground crew – young men grown old before their time by the demands of war – schoolboy mischief is revived as the first snowball fight is initiated.
