    Default Wellington N2909

    Hello, Forumites
    Happy New Year to all - fantastic knowledge you all have.
    I am researching Wellingtons made at Weybridge. I have been looking at a site which has the AM Form 78 for Wellingtons. Unfortunately, it does not have a Movement Card for N2909. From the Air Britain books on A/c serials, it appears that the aircraft went out to the Far East. Does anybody know to which unit(s) that particular aircraft was assigned?
    Many tia

    Thank you Zoran. Apart from that Air Britain listing, do you know the Units after it went out to India/Burma?

    Hello,

    Wellington IA N2909 (Second Series), was never allocated to No.210 Training Depot Squadron:

    Short 184 Seaplane N2900-N2949 (First Series):

    N2909:

    Delivered Calshot Training Squadron, Week Ending 27.4.18. became 210 Training Depot Squadron, Calshot 6.18.
    Deleted Week Ending 29.8.18.

    See:
    Royal Navy Aircraft Serials and Units 1911-1919.
    Sturtivant,Ray & Gordon Page.
    Tonbridge:Air-Britain (Historians),1992.
    p.225.

    See also:
    Flying Training and Support Units since 1912.

    p.276.

    The Wellington I am interested in, N2909, was around during World War 2, not WW1!
