by Robert Taylor
From Shanghai, Tokyo Rose screeched
out her broadcast as the 23rd Fighter Group prepared to assume the mantle
of General Chennault’s American Volunteer Group, “Greetings,
you American bandits of the Flying Tigers, especially you young American
kids of the USAAF who have come to take their place. The invincible Japanese
Air Force will utterly destroy you on your first day of aviation - the
fourth of July – your Independence Day!” On hearing the propaganda
Chennault vowed “We will not wait until the 4th. We’ll hit
them on the 3rd!”
Signed in pencil by the artist Robert Taylor and five Aces from the Flying Tigers: Major John Alison, Colonel ‘Tex’ Hill, Lt. Colonel Don Lopez, Colonel Ed Rector, Brigadier General Wiltz Segura.
