    When it was lost J9792 entry reads "47Sqn (Seaplane); crashed while landing on River Nile at Wau, Sudan, 16.9.32 WOC."

    Default Snainirut

    Hello Paul,

    Had a look and came up with the "Seven Pillars of Wisdom" page 563, it is in there with descriptions of Troop movements and Turkish air attacks, so I looked on Google maps and Damascus, Syria. Nearest that I could find was -
    Ash Sha'irat or Ash Shu'airat Airport or Shayrat all basicaly the same place I think.
    I think this must be the place the Fairey force landed, perhaps floats were fitted when repaires were carried out ?
    All for now
    Alex
