|Question about this a/c's info ? Mosquito HR574||Alex
For [serial]HR574[/serial], [s]the Unit is certainly 45 Sqn (only one in SEAC operating mosquitos in that range), but CWGC seem to have an error by stating 47 Sqn). So we should list it in the CWGC error thread to be corrected
(And I will correct it here - [I][B]Edit - Corrected Now[/B][/I])[/s].
(dont read too much on the NA link - it is populated by default to enable users to look it up if they want to. if the original data is incorrect, then the link is also incorrect).
The spreadsheet on "Mossie.org" (Max Huxtable) provides the following details:
F/L Al Scott and F/O Eric Fisher were hit by small arms fire while strafing Japanese positions on Toungoo airfield. Scott, severely wounded, climbed a little and ordered Fisher to bail out, then bailed out himself. Both reached the ground safely but Scott died soon thereafter due to loss of blood. Despite crashing one hundred miles into enemy territory, Fisher was able, through the help of locals and Force 136, to return to the Squadron three weeks later ("No Hero, Just a Survivor") Missing 14.4.45 (Air Britain Serials)

|211 Squadron RAF||Following on from recent posts noting website link updates (eg [url]http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/showthread.php?26683-Question-about-this-a-c-s-info-Mosquito-HR574&p=163006#post163006[/url])...
My work for 211 Squadron RAF has been going on since 1996 and as a website since 2001.
From 2011 to 2013, my site was hosted in the "free" hosting area of a succession of ISPs with differing amounts of space and differing indifferent levels of "service".
Over the past 20 years, links to my site have been shown here and elsewhere, some of them by my posts, plenty by others (and so not always known to me then or now).
A thorough internet search should find a high proportion of these outdated links. For most, posting the updated URL address is either impractical or impossible.
Coming across such old addresses, many a reader may turn to a fresh, focussed search to readily reach the current page. Others may be less able to find their way.
And of course, over the years since 2001, many pages have been added, and certainly every single page has been revised as new information came to hand or as I detected errors.
So, a summary list of past URLs for my 211 Squadron RAF site may be of possible aid to readers making deep searches (or for others puzzled by the seeming proliferation of non-functional addresses). While my site URL [url]www.211squadron.org[/url] has existed for many years, from 2001 to 2012, individual page addresses were at the URLs listed below:
April 2001 to September 2003: users.bigpond.com/clardo/
September 2003 to July 2005: members.aardvark.net.au/clardo/
August 2005 to September 2012: users.cyberone.com.au/clardo/
September 2012 to March 2013: members.iinet.net.au/~clardo/
21 March 2013: Full commercial hosting of [url]www.211squadron.org[/url]
thus bringing all individual pages addresses/links under that URL.
31 July: Regular annual minor site update
6 August: annual PANDORA "take".
Thanks to National Library of Australia, more or less annual set of complete "takes" from 2002 & ongoing:
[I]The Internet Archive[/I]
[B]NO [/B]copies of my site.
[I]archive.today, archive.is[/I] + numerous clones
Unauthorised outdated clandestine partial takes, not of my choice, unresponsive to complaint.
A convenient place to once more step back, I do hope. Time to pull on a jersey and get cycling. Yesterday spent the afternoon walking the bush tracks of Black Mountain on a bright crisp day, in the company of two good friends and the sight of a pair of wedge-tail eagles on the soar. ....Read More.||Don Clark on 3rd July 2021 07:46:21|
