    Hi, i am hoping some one can help me out with this one detail.
    April 17, 1943 at 15:06 pm Maj. Wilhelm-Ferdinand "Wutz" Galland
    downed 20 km WNW Somme Estuary Typhoon of 56 Sqn RAF.
    F/O Elvin Newton CLUDERAY (J/15371) pilot RCAF baled out.
    He died at sea.
    Please can anyone help with registration mark Hawker Typhoon Mk.IB (F/O Cluderay)?

    "Typhoon and Tempest Story" by Thomas and Shores, page 196 has it as DN478 US-U.

    Edit: however, they have him missing, baled out after an engine fire, 90 miles NE of Cromer...a bit of a discrepancy in the location there!
