The King Inspects Eighth Air Force Units

Rifles snap to "inspection arms" as the King looks over the guard of honor at an Eighth Air Force bomber station somewhere in England. (from San Antoinio, TX newspaper)

Third airman from the right holding rifle at port arms is Sgt. Willis R. Burrage, Assistant Crew Chief on Shirley Jean for his first few months after arriving in England. He then became a Crew Chief for other planes, such as The Memphis Belle.
