SJ,sir john said:You only saved Europe in WW1, come WW11 you did not enter the fray until Hitler decided to open his mouth and declare war on you.
You seem to have forgot (usual thing for a Rightie if it does not fit his way of thing) that we stopped the invasion even before you got over here.
Just tell me how many American aircraft took part in the Battle of Britain. :lol: Go on please do tell me. :lol:
Prior to the United States' entry into WWII many Americans volunteered for service in the RAF and RCAF. The Battle of Britain raged from May though October 1940. Most Americans followed the battle in the news and knew that in time the US would become involved in the war. The stories of the RAF pilots flying their Hurricanes and Spitfires inspired many to look into joining the RAF. As a result of the Battle of Britain the RAF was short on pilots so a call went out for pilots to replace the RAF's depleted ranks. Of the thousands that volunteered, 244 American pilots were to fly for the Eagle Squadrons; Number 71, 121, and 133 Squadrons of the Royal Air Force Fighter Command. It was the RAF's policy to pick Englishmen as squadron and flight commanders and 16 of these British pilots served with the Eagle Squadrons. From the time the first Eagle Squadron was formed in September 1940 until all three squadrons were disbanded and incorporated into the USAAF in September 1942, they destroyed 73 1/2 German planes while 77 American and 5 British members were killed.
I am a Brit and proud of it
