Wormingford in Essex dates back to operations against Zeppelins in WWI but became properly active as a military field in 1942. Closed and sold off in the early 60's it is now home to a local gliding club. In the war it was home to the 362nd and 55th Fighter Groups and there is a memorial to the former. It is possible to walk a lot of the old peri track as it is a public footpath but parking nearby is not easy, we were loosing the daylight and still had one more port of call. So here's the memorial.

Yes, Miss Velma. Gunfighter is another that I believe currently flies in 55th markings.

Not sure why the memorial excludes them but they have a website:
