    Default Wildcat V JV406/P

    Hi,

    I'd like to clear up just what unit/s this a/c served with. Some online sources indicate 882 Sqn (ie the IWM), and others 881 Sqn.

    Cheers,

    FAA Aircraft 1939-45 Sturtivant and Burrow does not confirm 882Sqn. They have 881Sqn 4/44; then 759Sqn at Yeovilton 9/44 and following a forced landing 772Sqn at Ayr 11 to 12/45.

    Thanks Steve. 881 makes more sense as the carrier is said to be HMS Pursuer.

    Cheers,
