Lt Col James Maggie Megellas
Commander of H Company, 3rd Battalion, 504th PIR, "Maggie" Megellas was the most decorated officer in the 82nd Airborne Division. After serving in Italy, where he was twice wounded, Megellas fought in Normandy before taking part in Operation Market Garden where he led his company in the crossing of the River Waal near Nijmegen. For bravery he was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross, the second highest gallantry award. He fought with great distinction in the Battle of the Bulge, and on 28th January, whilst advancing into the town of Herresbach, his company succeeded in killing and capturing a large number of Germans. He single handedly destroyed a German tank with grenades before they seized the town, without losing a man. He was nominated for the Medal of Honor, but the account was never included in the official report.


Sgt Bob Bearden
Bob was the leader of H Company mortar squad, 507th PIR, attached to the 82nd Airborne. The 507th arrived over Normandy two hours later than other airborne units without the element of surprise. Massive anti-aircraft fire and dense cloud caused them to have the worst drop of all, with most sticks missing their drop zones, stranded in isolated groups, or with their drop zone flooded by the Germans. Bob Bearden fought with a group of about 50 troopers from various units, taking the small town of Fresville, before being forced to retire due to overwhelming odds. In a brave action which left 20 Germans dead in his wake, Bob was captured by the Germans and then taken prisoner. He was freed by Russians in late December 1944.


Sgt Milton Schlesener
Milton Schlesener served with D Company, 505th PIR, and participated in an amazing four combat jumps from D-Day with the 505th Regiment. He served with the 82nd Airborne all the way from Normandy to Germany, and the end of the war.

 Eddie Irvine drove the Jaguar R2 during the 2001 Monaco Grand Prix and is captured in print darting through the Nouvelle Chicane on his way to third place and teams first podium position. With its beautiful backdrop of yachts and water, the circuit is famed for being the most picturesque and demanding track in the Formula 1 world series. It is a unique street circuit and a remarkable creation on the streets of this small Monarchy.  The car, chief designer John Russell and chief aerodynamicist Mark Handford under the leadership of technical director Steve Nichols, was launched in Coventry on 9th January 2001, and having switched to Michelin tyres, hopes were high at the start of the 2001 season. Eddie Irvines co-driver was Brazilian-born Luciano Burti who was previously Jaguar Racing development driver.  The engine was powered by the CR-3 VIO from Cosworth Racing but it was difficult to achieve satisfactory wind tunnel results as the tunnel used was in California so the car suffered a little aerodynamically. It has been described as possibly overly robust!

 The Short Stirling was the RAFs first four-engined bomber to enter service and it served throughout WWII in many roles including bomber, minelayer, troop carrier and glider-tug. The lack of power produced by its engines severely limited the loads carried by Stirlings. On long-range trips such as Italy, even with a greatly reduced bomb load the aircraft could barely clear the Alps. Despite very large losses due to its operational limitations, those that flew this big, agile aircraft, came to respect and look upon it with it with affection.
