    Default No. 106 Squadron 'Admiral' Lancasters

    In late 1942 through much of 1943 No. 106 Squadron named their Lancasters with 'Admiral' names. I have the following:

    W4195 (ZN - R) Admiral Von Gremlin
    W4118 (ZN - Y) Admiral Prune
    ED593 (ZN - Y) Admiral Prune II
    R5684 (ZN - P) Admiral Fighting Cock
    R5900 (ZN - X) Admiral Air Goosk
    R5677 (ZN - A) Admiral Chattanooga
    R5573 (ZN - B) Admiral Foo Bang V
    (ZN - T) Admiral Dumbo
    (ZN - Z) Admiral Shyte Awk II
    Admiral Pegasus
    Admiral Fire Brand

    Can anyone fill in the missing serials and/or codes?

    Does anyone have names of any others?

    Many thanks

    Hello,

    The correct spelling of the surname is, "McKechnie".
