    Default 99 Sqn a/c code letters

    Hi Pavel

    From Chris Ward / Steve Smith's* "3 Group Bomber Command" ...

    T2880 - code letter not given
    X2984 - not listed. T2984 is listed but no code letter.
    R3222 - no code letter given
    T2516 - no code letter
    T2957 - no code letter
    T2611 - ditto
    R1503 - ditto
    X9635 - ditto
    R1519 - LN-Q
    N2856 - no code letter

    Sorry about this, not as successful as with the 101 Sqn a/c.

    Ian

    * ps Steve, can I have my commission now, for plugging your book? :-)

    Adrian,
    I presume you are the same Adrian that posts on ToCH:
    http://forum.12oclockhigh.net/showthread.php?p=294401
    Over there you said "Made an emergency landing Strabrechtse heide in the Netherlands"
    Is there any reason why you now doubt that?
