Air Britain Serials Query - "T2962", possibly?Hi all Is there / does anyone have please an Air Britain Serials book covering "T" serials? If so, can someone please tell me what it might say for "T2962"? Having trouble deciphering an ORB serial entry. Could T2962 have been a 311 (Czech) Sqn Wellington Ic that was shot up by a night fighter and crash landed back at East Wretham on 29/3/1942 (P/O Bala)? And info gratefully received.

Air Britain Serials Query - "T2962", possibly?Thanks chaps. Looks like that's it. The ORB simply gives the serial's numbers (a bit faint but I'm pretty sure it says "2962" plus the a/c code letter (which happens to be "T" as well). I can try to look back in the ORB when next at Kew but it looks likely it was T2962. Another one off the list. Cheers Ian ....Read More.ianh on 24th January 2009 01:37:10
