    Default Spitfire Losses 16-07-1944

    Hi,

    I only have one Spitfire loss for this date,

    NH265 LFIX 403S–Combat with BF109’S North of Flers. Pilot is listed as F/O M B O’Kelly killed.

    No other losses recorded, could be a case of over-claiming again,

    Dear Colin,

    Thanks for the info. Do you have the ORB of 403 Squadron entries relating to this incident and at about what time did O'Kelly crash near Flers? It seems to be in the area where II./JG 3 claimed the Spitfires. Hope you can help me with this. Thanks again.

    Best regards,
    Rob

    Hi,

    Sorry for delay in replying. Don't have copy of ORB but FCL states 'Combat with 109's , evening',

    Hope that helps

    Colin
