I am looking for anyone who have have known Lt. Colonel Rufus O. Barkley, Jr. He was a P47 Thunderbolt pilot. I''m sorry that''s about all the information I have on him other than his plane crashed during WWII. My father who served in the Army at that time is deceased and I regret that I did not obtain information about my uncle from him and the missions in which he participated. Thanks to anybody who can help or direct me in finding this information.

I was delighted when someone passed on your website address.to find so many people who, having flown T-Bolts, had the same feelings about the aircraft as I had. Shortly after joining my Squadron,then flying Hurricane 2C''s, we were sent down to Yelahanka aerodrome outside of Bangalore in central India and converted onto the shining new ''birds''I can still recall the tremendous excitement of flying these modern powerful fighters. What an improvement over the doughty but tired old Hurricanes.We were the 2cd RAF Squadron to do so and were followed by many others (16 in all if my memory serves me correctly)We were sent back up to the front operating from many different airfields including several grass strips and moving down Burma as the 14th Army regained the initiative and finally drove the enemy right out of Burma. Most of our work was supplying close support to the 14th Army but on several occassions we flew as fighter escort for RAF Liberators bombing Rangoon and points south. Our longest trip on these missions was 6.5 hours which might well have been intolerable in a less comfortable cockpit.
