Good pair of items signed by aces of the U.S. 56th Fighter Group, best known as "Zemke's Wolf Pack", includes: I.S.P., 6 3/4" x 5" b/w, a candid group view of five members of the squadron in wartime. The image is signed by aces FRANCIS "GABBY" GABRESKI (1919-2002), ROBERT S. JOHNSON (1920-1998), and WALKER "BUD" MAHURIN (1918-2010). Gabreski adds his rank and kill count, Johnson his squadron and kill count, and Mahurin a dedication to "Vince". An ink inscription on the verso identifies another person present in the photo as an aide to President Truman, with additional pencil identifying inscriptions, else very good. WITH: a first-day cover, 7 1/2" x 4 1/4", celebrating the 40th anniversary of VE Day, signed by Gabreski, Johnson, and fellow 56th aces GERALD W. JOHNSON (1919-2002) and JOHN H. TRULUCK, and another individual. Tucked within the cover is a postcard image of Gabreski, signed very faintly in pencil and traced over in black ink by another hand. Very good. Two pieces.
