    Default Lancaster JB731F Call sign.

    Taken from the 97 Squadron orbs.

    From the ORB

    22.3.44

    JB731F F/O W.P.Moroney, Sgt F.W.Colter, F/O M.Jenkins, F/Sgt G.S.Davies, Sgt D.Duchmann, F/Sgt J.Bell, Sgt A.C.Mills. Up 1845. 6 x 2000lb. At 2038 hours an SOS received, no fix. At 2039 hours message received from "Pulham", position 53.21N 03.45S - baling out. No further news - missing.



    My question to the forum is, what does the call sign "Pulham" mean?

    With thanks, D.

    Could it have anything to do with the airfield RNAS/RAF Pulham?

    That must be it Alan, thanks, presumably they received the S.O.S.from the aircraft.
