My tribute to Ed Poscavage
Ed Poscavage’s story had to be told. This is why Joe Palladino wrote it, and then shared it with me. How Joe and I met is through a comment he made on my blog Our Ancestors. His wife and I were related.
Genealogy is another of my passion.
There is no information about how Ed Poscavage’s P-47 D looked like. It might have been a P-47 M. I have no way to tell.
I decided to paint it using this photo which I colorized.
Ed Poscavage joined the Air Force in July 1944 according to his RCAF discharge papers. I have no further information about his transition from a Hawker Hurricane and the P-47 D, and when he was posted with 366 Fighter Squadron which sported orange tails!
