The 458th Bomb Group (H), Eighth USAAF at Horsham St Faith, 1944-1945. The
458th Bomb Group (H) entered combat with the 8th Air Force early in 1944. Based
at Horsham St. Faith in England, the combat crews participated in the decisive
Campaigns – ‘Big Week’, ‘Big B’, D-Day and the assault on Germany’s oil industry
– waged by the USAAF up to VE-Day. The group also tested the operational use of
‘Azon’ radio-controlled bombs. The 458th flew a total of 240 missions, during
which over 13,000 tons of ordnance was dropped, and was achieved at the cost of
sixty-five crews MIA or involved in operational accidents. This is their
complete history.
