Question about this a/c's info ? Mosquito HR574Alex 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) Source: [URL]http://www.mossie.org/donated_files/[/URL] ....Read More.Jagan on 22nd October 2020 07:23:05
