    Default Spitfire PR.XI PL954

    Hello,

    Would be most appreciative if someone with a copy of A-B's PA100 to RZ999 Volume, could supply a full service history of Spitfire PR.XI PL954.

    Have details from: http://www.spitfires.ukf.net/p088.htm

    and some other info, but curious as to what the Register has to say.

    Thanks,

    Col.

    Hello Henk,

    Thanks. Hope you are well.

    Bit of misinformation about this aircraft/incident.

    2-1-1945
    No.681 Sqn
    Spitfire PR.XI PL954

    Pilot forced to abandon burning aircraft near Kalewa, Burma. Initially posted missing. Spent 3 days and nights in the jungle walking back to base - safe and uninjured.

    AUS409100 W/O (Pilot) Frank Victor ENTWISLE RAAF (later DFC - LG: 19-10-1945 p.5122)*

    * Surname incorrectly recorded on DFC documents as "ENTWISTLE"!
