Halifax Modifications.Hello, The modifications to the Halifax Tail Units . The D Type (Mod 814). These units were I understand fitted on Mk.III Halifax a/c on assembly lines. And Retro-fitted to other Mk's "as and when" so to speak. Can dates be put on the time these new units were fitted to any particular Mk ? Also did any Mk's not receive these new tail units ? Trying to seek out the Halifax that collided with the F-5 Lightning in December 1943. The Lightning is said to have arrived in the UK on 16th November 43 and was Salvaged on 22nd December 43. Photo shows the D Type unit embedded in side of the Lightning, said to be at Speke. But no Halifax loss between these dates seems to fit. The ten Mk.III's were - 25-11-43 ...
