    Default Spitfire X4184 September 1943

    Morgan & Shacklady say X4814 of 58 OTU, Grangemouth, was abandoned after loss of control in cloud and crashed on Dunnacher Hill, Comrie, Perthshire, on 14 September 1943. Other sources say 5 September. Does anyone know the correct date and the i/d of the pilot please?

    Hi Keith,
    Date I have is 5th Sept 1943 and the location should read Dunruchan Hill, no note on the Pilot.
