    Default Duxford/Mildenhall Met Flights aircraft

    I'd appreciate advice as to either the dates the following aircraft were allocated to either the Duxford or Mildenhall Met Flights, or the names of their parent units.

    Gauntlet:
    K7804 (Definitely a Mildhenhall MF a/c)
    I'm not sure about the following but they appear in Jeffrey Quill's logbook in Feb 1935
    K4082, K4083 and K 4084

    Bulldog:
    K2963 (Definitely a Duxford a/c; crashed on Newmarket to Cambridge railway line on 22 Sept 1936)
    K2172 (Not sure about this one but appears in Quill's logbook Feb 1935)

    Wallace:
    K3571 (Although this appears in Quill's logbook I suspect he 'borrowed' it for the opportunity to add another type to his list)

    Many thanks Dave, you've confirmed my suspicions.
