    Default does ANy one have the Beaufort file?

    If anyone has a copy of the Beaufort file by Roger Hayward Could they please do me a Huge favour and see if it has any information on DD937 Of 39sq. I am particularly after the Letter it was given I.E. "R" OR "J" etc.

    Thanks Amrit
    Interesting that it says shot down by fighters.This is the first time anyone has confirmed this.The other crews on the mission did not Know what happened to it and said it may have been attacked by fighters and was lagging behind the formation.
    I have a claim from a Bf 109 pilot for a Beaufort in the right place at approx the right tme. Speaking to Roy Conyers Nesbit this morning he said that German pilots claims had to be confirmed by their wingman to be confirmed when over the sea.
    I am beginning to believe Hermann Munzerts [of JG53]claim was for DD937!
    Thanks for checking the file for me.

    Hi Nick

    I completely forgot to look at the back of the File. The code for DD937 was 'R'.

    Sorry about that
