    Default 29/08/1941 Sgt.Philip Grisdale 72 Squadron

    Hi !

    This pilot is buried at Zandvoorde, Belgium. Several sources mention that his plane was Spitfire Vb P8713. This plane was however lost with a Polish pilot.
    Who knows the correct serial of the Spitfire of Sgt Grisdale ?

    Many thanks in advance !

    Best regards

    Luc

    Default P8713

    According to the 72 Sqn ORB Grisdale was lost flying P8713. I have information which reports P8713 being allocated to 72 Sqn on 27 July 31 and being lost escorting Blenheims on 29 Aug 41.
