    Thank you David !
    In the logbook it is well Oxford T1460 written ....three times !!!
    Must be a mistake by the pilot .
    If it is a Lyzander, where he was posted ?
    and what did a Lysander on a Bomber station ?
    Target towing ??
    The purpose of the flights was to go to Northolt and Warboys, on 11,13 and 14 June 1944.

    Hi Alain

    According to the Air Britain book Lysander T1460 was Struck Off Charge on 31-12-43 . Perhaps T1460 is actually T1260 but has been mistakenly recorded or a case of poor handwriting !
