    Default 260 Sqn Mustang puzzle

    Hello,
    I have come across a problem with a 260 Sqn Mustang.

    KH609. a Mk.III / P-51C.

    From HMAW vol 5 page 346
    21/1/1945 ditched Pilot Lt. C.B.SUSSKIND(SAAF) kia.

    The pilot's body was later recovered and rests at Ravenna War Cemetery. Which suggests that the aircraft was also recovered and may later have been returned to service ?

    Baughers USAAF serial numbers -
    44-11034 to RAF as Mustang III KH609. Ditched off Ravenna Jan 21, 1945 following
    engine failure.

    However the 260 Sqn ORB has KH609 flying with different pilots on several opps in March/April 1945.
