    Default 4 A.G.S. Miles Masters - DK957/B and one other

    Hello again all

    Based at R.A.F. Morpeth, 4 A.G.S. had two Miles Masters on their books. Alan Lake's 'Flying Units of the R.A.F.' has DK957/B, and Air Britain's 'R.A.F. Flying Training & Support Units' by Ray Sturtivant et al has DK959/A.

    DK959, however, doesn't appear to be a valid R.A.F. serial number. Does anyone have the relevant Air Britain R.A.F. Register book and can see if it's possibly 949 or 969? And what does it have for DK957?

    Many thanks

    Regards

    Simon

    Simon,
    If all else fails, then museumofberkshireaviation.co.uk/ may have the answer. They know almost everything about "Miles". The last time I used them (and visited) they were very interested/co-operative!

    Thank you for the replies gents, much appreciated.

    DK859 looks to be correct serial for the erroneously recorded DK959.

    Regards
