    Default I.D. for Wildcat flown by Digby Cosh, 881 Sqn, April 1944 against Tirpitz?

    Hello everyone

    I'm doing a bit of research on the above Canadian pilot, who flew with 881 Sqn FAA. In April 1944 he was part of the attack on the Tirpitz. Is there any way of knowing the I.D. of the Wildcat he was flying? And would it have been a Wildcat IV?

    Regards

    Simon
