    Default Chipmunk Serial Number Help please

    Hi all - could anyone with the appropriate A-B serials register please have a look at Chipmunk WG362 for me and tell me what units it served with and when?

    Many thanks in anticipation,

    Greg

    Thanks Pete - I did see that thread when I did a search on Google earlier, but it didn't tell me what I was after - namely did this Chipmunk ever spend any time with 100 Squadron? It wasn't a type that the squadron ever operated, but maybe it was the C.O.'s "taxi" or something similar...

    Brilliant, many thanks Ian. I'm guessing that A-B lifted the info from the movements card so the dates will be missing from there too... At least it seems to prove she was with 100 at some point though...
