      Bubblehead - Jim Duffy was Bud's best friend. My father was Bert Marshall, Jr and was Bud's 354FS CO before he became Deputy Group, the 355th CO. Dad very much respected and loved Bud and John Fortier is my friend.

      Hi Drgondog,

      I'm a former student of Bud Fortier's from Dover, N.H. I had him for fifth grade at Horne St. Elementary school in the seventies. I remember hearing stories of the 354th when he read aloud excerpts from his upcoming book and singing along with 'Daisy' and 'Yellow Bird' as he banged away on the piano in the afternoons. If you're the 'Duff' he was always referring to, then it is a pleasure to meet you.

      Hi DG

      I cant find the thread even....it was an argument about P-51 losses and victories, which I know is your cup of tea. Argument has blown over, so dont stress. if i find the thread and the specific exchange, I will forward the details

      How fares everything in DGs world?

      Regards

      Michael

      Believe me, we Mods don't. :lol:

      Unfortunately it really does take away from the great exchange of facts, views and opinions. It really does...

      Hi DG

      Was wondering if i could interest you at all in a small bar room brawl i am having about aa perennial BS subject that keeps coming up in the forum again and again. Its the old "the LW was outnumbered over Germany by hordes of P-51s". Im doing my best but this is really your backyard and was hoping you might be interested

      The thread is http://www.ww2aircraft.net/forum/aviation/realistic-max-speeds-ww2-fighters-speeds-late-109s-30696.html?highlight=

      Have a look and see if you are willing to correct the bullshitometer


      Regards

      Michael
