    Pavel,
    Bowyer's "The Stirling Story" quoting a crew member of N6022 who saw N6007 go down has it as "Q-Queenie".
    Cheers,
    Bill.

    Hi

    Big piece about the loss of MG-Q in Tom Docherty's definitive 7 Squadron book (Pen and Sword 2007). Fred Williams is not mentioned directly.

    Hello

    I've bought the book and I wouldn't certainly rate it "definitive" about No. 7 Squadron. Lots of mistakes / typos, I found it not detailed enough.

    I was quite disappointed, that Squadron deserved better.
