    Michael Anthony SIMS' brother F/O Bernard Lawrence SIMS - 142547 was killed 23-2-1943 flying a Spitfire with 682 Sqn (San Severo, Italy) and his name commemorated on the Malta Air Forces Memorial.
    Any idea about the serial number of this Spitfire ?
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Wrong date given for F/O Bernard Lawrence SIMS: must be 23-2-"1945".
