    Alex,
    This was a Hudson, as per AIR81/3947: https://discovery.nationalarchives.g...ls/r/C16688045
    The other four crew were taken POW.
    The correct serial is N7301.
    I have amended our database to take out the incorrect links to the Spitfire (with the exception of deleting the POWs, which Jagan will need to do).
