    Default Wellington EX-A in 199 Sqn.

    Does anyone know if Wellington (Mk III or Mk X) with code letters EX-A was used by 199 Sqn in March-May 1943?
    During the bombing mission to Duisburg on 8/9 April 1943, two Polish crews from 300 Sqn flew two Wellingtons borrowed from 199 Sqn (those units shared the same Hemswell Station at that time). They were code EX-Z and possibly EX-A. EX-Z was definitely BK138. But what about the other aircraft??
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Regards,
    Greg

    From the 199 ORB, Wellington III BJ819-A operated to Hamburg on 3-4 March and Essen on 5-6 March 1943. There is no record of any aircraft A operating in April. During May, Wellington X HE921-A operated to Dortmund on 4-5 May, Duisburg on 12-13 May, Bochum on 13-14 May and Dortmund on 23-24 May 1943.

    Hello Douglas, Thanks for your help.
    However it`s hard to conclude definitely which one of them was flown by Poles in April.
    Hopefully sooner or later I`ll manage to sort it out. Perhaps details from appropriate AM Cards would be helpful in it.
