Flt Officer Warren Peglar, RCAF, shot down two pairs in two separate combats while my father was leading the 354FS/355thFG. Shown on wingof P-51B WR-Q that he was flying on August 3, 1944 - shooting down a Bf 109 and Fw 190. On September 11 he was leading a 354FS Flight when he downed two more Bf 109s. He was recognized as an 8th AF ace with four air and oe ground. Shown talking to my father.
Hello and welcome.So I was googling Warren Peglar ans came across this forum. He was my grandad and an amazing human. I miss him terribly, but it's so amazing to see his memory lives on, even today!
Dave, IIRC Peglar was never 'assigned' a permanent ride. He also flew WR-W and WR-E and probably several others. As you know the Squadron Ops (Lenfest when Peglar assigned to 354FS) put the pilots on the Board and the Engineering Officer assigned ships -to which the flight and element leaders most often had a specific ship/CC, but one might be 'down' so a different ship as assigned.Hey Bill, wasn't WR-Q Spencer's ride?
