    Default Spitfire IIb P8134, 53 OTU crash March 10, 1944

    P8134 - Spitfire IIb of 53 OTU was damaged at Kirton Lindsey, Lincs on
    March 10, 1944 (12:30h),

    The accident card details the pilot as the Belgian F/O SOUVIEDJM (Scuyiedjm or Scuviedim ?), (143484) , but the hand writing is hard to read.

    Circumstances of accident are - air firing exercise, engine cut soon after take-off, turned back and belly landed on airfield.

    Can anyone confirm the correct spelling of this pilot’s name ?

    Thanks in advance.
