STEEPLE MORDEN 355th - Roll of Honour

World War 2 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and copyright © 2005 Martin Edwards

The memorial stands outside the old Steeple Morden fighter base (AAF Station F-122). This was manned by USA personnel during World War 2 and from here flew P-47 Thunderbolts and P-51 Mustangs. The centre section describes the various squadrons making up 355th Fighter Group. This is flanked by two columns, one giving the history of the group and the second the units assigned to the station. The outer columns name those men who died from the base; the left most column being the American servicemen and the right most column Commonwealth servicemen.

The airfield started its career as a satellite for nearby Bassingbourn in late 1940 and was occupied by Wellingtons (see the Wellington T2905 website). Plans were drawn up by Fighter Command to use alternative airfields should the invasion of Southern England take place. Steeple Morden was selected to take aircraft from Northolt. The airfield was bombed twice with Wellingtons being damaged in the process. The base was used more for training while Bassingbourn's concrete runways were being laid so the airfield became home to Ansons and Lysanders too. Eventually they moved away and the base was handed over to the Americans who carried out construction work to make it into a bomber station. The 5th Photographic Group were the first Americans to see service at the base and they were commanded by Colonel Elliott Roosevelt, the US President's son. They used converted P-38s and were known as F-4s. They soon moved on and the base was used briefly by Blenheims of D Flight of 17 OTU.

It was realised that Steeple Morden was not really suitable for a Class A bomber airfield so it was relegated it to a fighter station. The 355th Fighter Squadron was activated 15th November 1942, at Hamilton Field, CA, flying the P-39 Airacobra. The unit trained in California, Nevada, Oregon, and New York before transferring to the 9th Air Force in England in November 1943. The 355th Fighter Group moved into Steeple Morden with P-47Ds although it took some time for the unit to become operational because of the short supply of aircraft. After a slow start they were re-equipped with P-51s and went on to become one of the most successful fighter units of the war, strafing aircraft on the ground. Aircraft from here were also used to escort B-17s on a bombing mission on Polish oilfields, made possible by the use of drop tanks. The 355th's last mission was on 25th April 1945 by which time they had recorded 868 victories.
