    Hi Chris,

    I've had a look through 43(F) Squadron 'The Fighting Cocks' by J Beedle;

    L1725 taken on charge 29/11/38 Sgt Arbuthnot baled out 05/12/39. Wreckage dug up in September 1978. No id letter given.

    Z2807 a Hurricane IIa taken on charge 29/03/41. Collided with Z3270 during practise attacks. Sgt Turner killed 12/10/41. Code FT-D.

    You have Oct '42 for Z2807. A typo?

    Hope this helps.

    Alex
