    Default 26 Sqn Lysander accident on 23rd or 24th May 1939

    On 23rd or 24th May 1939 a 26 Sqn Lysander tipped over on landing. The pilot was P/O Herbert Dixon Dixon. Can anyone provide an ID for the aircraft?

    I suspect it to be one of a batch of Lysander Mk.IIís delivered between May 1938 and April 1939 by Westland, Yoevil, to contract no 552457/36. These aircraft had a serial beginning with the letter L.

    Many thanks,

    Jim
