    Default 137 Squadron Whirlwind Codes

    Hello Everyone

    I'm hoping that some of you out there might be able to help me with my research into the following Whirlwinds.

    P7058 SF-G
    Can anyone confirm the squadron code for this machine?

    P7063 SF-?
    P7114 SF-?
    Does anyone know the squadron codes for these machines please?

    Did any of them have personalised markings of any kind?

    I would also be very keen to obtain copies of any photos of these machines.

    They were all on strength with 137 Sqn in early 1943. Courtesy of Bingham's book I know their fates but would like to know their id's.

    Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you all in advance.

    Paul

    Hi Paul
    I suggest Google Images
    http://images.google.com/images?q=Westland+Whirlwind&gbv=2&ndsp=20&hl=en&ie =UTF-8&oe=ISO-8859-1&start=0&sa=N as a possible source for what you want. You will have to be patient with an awful lot of irrelevance but the a/c you seek may be there.
    Regards
    Dick
