    Default July 15, 1944 Allied aerial victory (moved)

    Please, can someone tell me which unit claimed aerial victory on July 15, 1944 over Bu-131 biplane in Croatia (near Borovo/Vukovar)?

    Thank you!
    With kind regards,

    (Marko, I have moved your request to the GENERAL FORUM where it will get more attention.

    My mistake, thought that I post to General...thank you.

    Got info that RAF 213. Squadron is the one.

    Marco,

    I replied to this on the TOCH Forum as well. In the early morning on 15 July 1944, four Mustangs of 213 Sqn. found 6 single-engine biplanes in the Vukovar area and claimed 4 shot down. The pilots were:

    S/L Spencer R. Whiting in FB337 (AK-A)
    F/O Roland Anthony in FB302
    W/O D. E. Cooke in FB332
    W/O Kenneth A. L. Ford in FB313 (AK-E)

    Those Other Eagles credits Whiting with 2 of them. Unfortunately both the history of 213 The Hornet Strikes and the squadron ORB are unclear as to the allocation of the other 2 claims.

    Regards,
    Tom
