    Default Halifax Movement Cards (LW Series)

    Has anyone got the movement cards for the LW series of Halifax?

    If so, would it be possible to have the dates when the following were taken on strength / struck off strength by No. 35 Squadron:

    LW323
    LW326
    LW343
    LW371

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Regards

    Pete

    G'day Pete

    No. 428 'Ghost' (B) Squadron used the Halifax B. Mk. II between November 1943 and June 1944

    No. 35 'Madras Presidency' (B) Squadron used the Halifax B. Mk. II between October 1941 and January 1944

    Halifax B. Mk. II, s/n LW323 was delivered between August and October 1943. It was first used by No. 428 'Ghost' (B) Squadron prior to being transferred to No. 35 (B) 'Madras Presidency' Squadron.

    Halifax B. Mk. II, s/n LW326 was delivered between August and October 1943. It too was first used by No. 428 'Ghost' (B) Squadron prior to being transferred to No. 35 (B) 'Madras Presidency' Squadron.

    Halifax B. Mk. II, s/n LW343 was used exclusively by No. 35 (B) 'Madras Presidency' Squadron. It was also delivered between August and October 1943.

    Halifax B. Mk. III, s/n LW371was used by No. 35 'Madras Presidency' (B) Squadron sometime between October 1943 and March 1944. It was then taken on strength with No. 10 (B) Squadron sometime between March 1944 and May 1945.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers...Chris
