    Default EL519 or JL519 ?

    Hello,

    P/O. W, S, Watson and F/O. G, H, E, Buckley were in the same Beaufighter on the 8th March 1944, 177 Sqdn.

    The Air Britain RAF serial book for EL519 has -
    EL519, - 177 -Missing ( Toungoo ) 8.3.44.

    The ORB for 177 Sqn has JL519, crewed by Watson and Buckley..

    Was it JL519 or was it EL519 ?

    The Air Britain book for JL519 has -
    JL519 - 301 FTU/227 - Hit by flak and force landed in Turkey, 1.5.43

    The 227 Squadron ORB has JL519 crewed by F/Lt. T, St.B, Freer, DFC and F/O, C, Holman, 1/5/43.
