RCAF Pilots, Normandy, 1944[QUOTE=Bill Walker;48020]Just a word of warning about "They Shall Not Grow Old" - it is full of typos, and it is a good item to cross check its information with other sources.[/QUOTE] I assume that's clearly true, since I had found, somewhere on the Internet, MK941 instead of LF217 for Lorne Franklin Curry's Spitifire, and MK304 instead of LF472 for Arthur Walter Roseland's Spitfire. ....Read More.Fox on 5th May 2010 09:39:37

RCAF Pilots, Normandy, 1944Thanks, Bill. Thus, it seems that we have a problem with a couple of serial numbers: - Curry's Spitfire: MK941 or LF217? - Roseland's Spitfire: MK304 or LF472? - Shapter's Spitfire: MJ470 or MJ570? -------------------------------------------- Editing: I found some answers there => http://www3.sympatico.ca/angels_eight/127ops.html - Curry: MK941; - Shapter: MJ570; - Lanfranchi: MJ988 (instead of JD988 that was not correct). So, what about Roseland's aircraft? ....Read More.Fox on 5th May 2010 05:23:48
