35 Squadron - Halifax Mk1 (series 1) Codes & Serial Number ColourHi James, Does the painting show the upper surface camouflage extending from the wing trailing edge in a slightly wavy line up to the leading edge of the tailplane? If so the serial would almost definitely be red. There are photos of L9501 TL-Y i.e. the next off the line, in this scheme. Later on in 1941 the demarcation line moved up to a wavy line away from the wing, and then the serials and codes were both grey. This is confirmed by comments in MJF Bowyers book in which amongst several other comments he recorded L9486 TL-B with the early paint job and grey codes, red serials. regards Peter ....Read More.PeterColwill on 9th September 2015 07:14:35

L9500 was certainly one of the earliest airframes with a camouflage paint scheme (according to the pilot's commissioned painting at any rate) that covered the majority of the front turret and then extended in a more or less straight line (all be it following a roughly 15 degree trajectory) up towards the tail plane. Having read your comments, discovered a rather key image of the rear fuesalage of a crashed L9501 and examined some 35 squadron shots of aircraft from the period (including L9499) I am now heavily leaning towards the squadron codes being depicted in medium sea grey and the serial number in dull red. Even with black and white images it is fairly easy to tell differences one brightness of the colours used. Many thanks again for your help Peter. Best regards, James ....Read More.Halifax_L9500 on 9th September 2015 01:54:51
