134 Squadron Thunderbolt serial/codes Jan 1945Hello everyone While doing a bit of research on a local pilot, I came across some Sortie Reports in the 134 Sqn ORB Appendices which list individual Thunderbolts code letters for the Ops for January 1945. I've cross-referenced them with the Thunderbolt serials listed in the January 1945 ORB Form 541, so here's the list, which may be useful to someone: Thunderbolt I: FL804 - GQ-F FL810 - GQ-D HB970 - GQ-J (S? - recorded as both) HB992 - GQ-H HD135 - GQ-V HD153 - GQ-P Thunderbolt II: HD184 - GQ-W (lost January 5th 1945 - 1439445 W/O John Gerald O'Neill KIA) HD196 - GQ-B HD201 - GQ-Z HD210 - GQ-R HD219 - GQ-L HD223 - GQ-Y HD233 - GQ-Y (GQ-Y recorded as both HD223 and HD223 in the F.541) HD237 - GQ-V HD260 - GQ-R HD277 - GQ-M HD281 - GQ-T HD282 - GQ-A KJ176 - GQ-D KJ178 - GQ-F KJ184 - GQ-H KJ209 - GQ-T KJ217 - GQ-W KJ231 - GQ-S KJ235 - GQ-J KJ270 - GQ-P Some of the KJ series are recorded as Thunderbolt IIa - not sure what that indicates.
