    Pavel,

    Good Afternoon.

    Rather than send you a wealth of separate posts, here is some of the information you seek about Mosquito losses.

    I cannot find anything about KB575 for the date you quote.

    KB626: Sylvan Ray GARNER & Joseph George SKELFOON

    KB620: Truman Clay HENDERSON & Allan William HARDING

    KB370: F/O John Martyn SQUANCE & F/O Gunn Lauger Marino MAXO RCAF

    KB504: Thomas Franklin CAMPBELL Jnr & P/O George Daniel BOYD

    KB593: Woodrow WALDEN & Thomas SCOTLAND

    The source is Ocean Bridge by Carl A Christie

    Hope this helps

    there is a copy of Ocean Bridge available right now on ABEbooks.com for only USD 9.90 + postage. A very good book and worth having if you want all the Mosquito losses from the Appendix at the back.

    The following Mosquitos are mentioned in that appendix: which do you not have details for?

    KB220, KB230, KB398, KB504, KB535, KB536, KB626, KB620, KB563, KB313, KB370, KB475, KB593, KA968, KA153, LR503, KA237, KA260, KA317 (Ireland), KA316

    I wonder who is the person who keeps using the text from my website without credit for Mosquito KA317. The old asnwiki not great for that despite being emailed at least twice on the subject.

    Sorry Dennis. I was busy. A dentist is a mad butcher.

    Dennis know the details for KB398 KB563 KB313?
