    Great Peter, thank you.

    I have a note that K3244 was with 607 Squadron briefly for a month in September to October 1939, but seemingly not.

    Does it give the dates for K3407 being with 607? I have it with them from March 1937 to October 1939, but would appreciate confirmation.

    Regards

    Simon
