    Default Spitfire LA251 Lost with pilot 1946

    Please can I seek some assistance.
    I have been thwarted by a lack of Operational Record Book entries on 122 Squadron which became 41 Squadron in late March early April 1946.
    On the 8 March 1946 Spitfire LA251 a MkF21 aircraft was flown by F/Lt SUTHERLAND DFC of 122 Squadron.
    The aircraft failed to return and the pilot is commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial.
    In the absence of ORB records have been unable to locate any details upon the loss of Spitfire LA251.
    I do feel the particular circumstances here are due to the Squadron events at amalgamation which has had significant ramifications on recording this history.
    Kind regards and thank you.
