    Hello Highgroundsman,

    These are all the movements recorded on its F.78;
    46 MU 6-11-40
    3 Sqn 19-11-40
    17 Sqn 6-4-41
    55 OTU 2-10-41
    Cat. E 11-2-42 (FA)
    SOC 14-2-42.
    There is no page 2 on the reel for V7666.

    Regards,

    Martin Gleeson.

    This Hurricane I have as written off Cat.E at Castletown on 19th March 1941 with P/O John Schou so the movements don`t tie in. Martin: Are these the movements for another Hurricane or positively for V7666. Perhaps number for the aircraft I have written off on 19th March 41 with 213 Sqn is the wrong serial? Regards. Dave.

    Martin / Mojmir, It would appear I had it wrong from a source in Norway. I have just found the correct serial on the AIR 81 list and it should be; V7664. Sorry for the mix up. Would you happen to have the 78 details for this aircraft please? Regards. Dave.

    Hi Dave,

    The F.78 for V7664 has even fewer entries than that for V7666, but they match your accident better.
    46 MU 6-11-40
    1 Sqn 19-11-40
    213 Sqn 15-2-41.
    On page 2 we see in the write-off column;
    '19.3.41 F.A. O. Cat. E'
    Below that a SOC date of 3-4-41.

    Regards,

    Martin.

    Great work Martin, I see it was with 1 Sqn for a short while, not sure if the ORB has aircraft listed by code letters or serial, but I`ll have a look there may be a mention. Thanks again for your help, I really appreciate it. Regards. Dave.
