****** RAF Debden was home of the 4th Fighter Group, 8th Air Force, US Army Air Force WW-II, from September 1942 to September 1945. Vanguard Yanks of the 71st, 121st and 133rd RAF Eagle Squadrons and their Spitfires traded RAF Blues for U.S. Army Olives to become the 4th Fighter Group. Long ranging Thunderbolts, later Mustangs were to help a dedicated 4th Group achieve the most victories over enemy aircraft in the entire U.S. Army Air Force - 1016 enemy aircraft destroyed. In Remembrance of our Comrades who were not to see the War's end, and of Anglo-American endeavors to a common cause, we, survivors of the 4th Fighter Group, humbly dedicate this Memorial.
