    Default ORB 81 Sqn - 13-9-1943

    Spitfire V.C LZ937 abandoned take-off Salerno and was hit by Spitfire IX EN464. Both aircraft were write-offs and one airman killed. F/Lt Wilfred J. GOBY - 122949 lies buried in the Salerno War Cemetery.
    Was he on EN464 or LZ937.
    Regards and thanks,
    Henk.

    Hi Henk,

    81 ORB 'B' Flight records F/Lt. W.J. Goby in LZ973 and 'A' Flight, F/Sgt. P.J. Ryan (NZ) in EN464 that afternoon.
    Possibly a typo in the ORB for the serial as F/Lt. W.J. Goby flew LZ937 on the 6th, 10th and 11th September.

    Regards,

    Stevie
