    Default Blenheim IV Z7271 - looking for service details

    Hello everyone

    I'm looking for the service details of the above Blenheim IV, if anyone can help. It was involved in a belly-landing after suffering flak damage on July 19th 1941 at Wattisham, whilst with 226 Sqn as MQ-K, but I wondered if it survived that ordeal and went back into service again?

    Many thanks,

    Regards

    Simon

    A quick supplementary question, if I may: when did this Blenheim enter service?

    Thanks
