    Have a problem with these results,
    4/5/44 - BARTER, A,B -Lt - 2 RSU - JG126.
    And
    15/8/44 - TROBRIDGE, D,A,G - W/O - 3 ADU - JF494.
    Both aircraft said to be Spitfire's.
    However both serial numbers did not exist. The numbers fall between series and so they cannot be correct.

    JG126
    Series of Mk.VIII's . Starts JG104 to JG124. And continues JG157 to JG204. Gap JG125 to JG203.
    Cannot find any a/c with serial numbers in the JG 125 to JG203 range.
    But could be JK126 or JL126 perhaps.

    Similar with JF494
    Again Spitfire 's Mk VIII's. Starts JF443 to JF485 then a gap to JF501 to JF528. Gap JF486 to JF500.
    Cannot find any a/c with serial numbers in the JF486 to JF500 range.
    But could be JG494 soc 31.8.44.

    Alex

    William
    McFall
    1890
    Lanarkshire
    1916

    So WW1 Airman who re-joined probably for WW2 (his Marriage Cert form 1920 says Sprit Salesman) - so looks like demobbed..

    Well he died in Stranmills hospital, Belfast, of an intracranial heamorhage due to a fractured skull.. the cause is in the most illegible handwriting imaginable . I'll have to look a little deeper into another source to see if its written elsewhere by a spider that wasn't drunk, blind and dyslexic
