We recently received a box of Wilson native Corporal Sidney Forbes’ WWII materials. Sidney was a fighter plane mechanic in England during the war. From the pictures it looks like he mostly serviced P51s and something that looks like a F6F Hellcat (although that was usually a carrier based plane in the Pacific theater). After the war he opened his own service station called Forbes on Nash Street downtown. All of his materials will be added to the Wilson County’s Greatest Generation Digital Project.
