Foggia Air Complex “Checkertails”

Post by Holdingpoint » Tue Dec 14, 2021 1:42 pm

Hi I’m restoring a 1942 GPW, presumably arrived and served in Italy from Chester PA my idea is to restore it as an USAAF jeep GPW that served with 15th USAAF 325th FG 317th FS checkertails in Lesina (Foggia air complex) where my grand father ,who unfortunately left us some years ago, who surrended to us army, served as base cook. It’ extremely rare to find pics of Lesina. I wrote to many association (checkertails vet association and museums I never received an answer) it will a great help for me if you may send me some pics, if not of Lesina at least pics in Foggia air complex airports. I’m plenty of doubts about markings hood stars etc of USAAF jeeps used in Foggia air complex airfields. Pics will be a great help to my project. Thanks in advance for your precious help!
