Hi there,

Would anyone here happen to know the squadron code letter that was worn on Fairey Firefly Mk. 1 DT979 of HMS Indefatigable, which was lost in action over Japan on the 10th of August 1945, with Sub Lt (A) Thomas Chalmers Glen McBride RNZNVR as the Observer? He was the last New Zealander killed in air operations in WWII.

Also does anyone know the serial number and letter code of another Firefly 1 of the same squadron lost the same day which was flown by New Zealanders Berne O'Neill and Ian Darby? They both escaped by parachute and became POW's.

Thanks.
