Ira Kepford Corsair (F4U-1D) Jolly Roger
One of the U.S. Navy's premiere aces, Ira "Ike" Kepford scored 16 confirmed victories while serving with VF-17 "Jolly Rogers". During the Battle of the Solomon Sea, Kepford scored 4 victories before nearly running out of ammunition and fuel. He prepared for an emergency landing aboard the nearby U.S.S. Bunker Hill, w hereby Captain Ballentine was pleased the young defender came aboard. Captain Ballentine even served Kepford with a refreshment. Kepford earned two Navy Crosses, the Silver Star, the Gold Star, three Distinguished Flying Crosses, the Air Medal, and the American Defense Service Medal.
This fine art print includes an aged background designed from an actual World War II era military map. A timeless design for any decor!
