Liberator Training in IndiaFrom the Oughton book, these are the only Liberator histories to mention a link to 6 RFU. This list includes EW219 (cited in the source Col quoted) but not two of the full serial numbers mentioned in the Totham logbook, EW183 and EW258. The double-asterisks indicate individual aircraft histories I already listed in my earlier posting. It is possible that there were other Liberators flown at 6 RFU but which were not officially taken on strength of 6 RFU.
