Individual letters PDU and PRU Spitfires and HudsonThanks, so D-27 was W4055 and D-28 presumably W4056. Why such weird markings? Are there any photos of those aircraft? ....Read More.Franek Grabowski on 26th November 2007 04:18:34
Individual letters PDU and PRU Spitfires and HudsonHello Franek Apologies for slight delay in getting back to you. I’ve had a look at the ORB for PRU in Air 29/414 for the dates quoted but have found only the four following operational sorties listed for Mosquitos:- 21 Oct’41 – Mosquito W4055 F/L Taylor DFC, photos Kristiansand, Lista, Mandal, Stavanger & Kjeik(?) 22 Oct’41 – Mosquito W4056 F/O McEwan, Oslo Stavanger, result nil due to weather 23 Oct’41 – Mosquito W4055 F/L Taylor DFC, photos Oslo, Stavanger, Hargesund, Hoiten & Tronsberg 24 Oct’41 – Mosquito W4055 F/L Taylor, photos Aalborg, Frederikeshaven, Kristiansand Oddly whilst Taylor does feature in your list, your note said the Oct’41 sorties were flown with Hill. All the above were flown out of Wick, and the only note I can see for Hill during this period is flying a Spitfire sortie out of St. Eval to Cherbourg. Can you see from the log which airfield the sorties were flown from and possibly even the targets covered on ops? Hopefully something will appear that ties in with your unusual a/c serials. Kind regards Pierre ....Read More.Pierre Renier on 27th November 2007 08:15:27
