    Hi Mark,

    Possibility:

    Monday, 15 January, 1945.

    Spitfires of 155 squadron also swept over Meiktila during the day, but these were met by intense light AA which struck Wt Off Brown's aircraft, causing it to crash in flames.

    Thanks Col

    Looks correct 155 instead of 15 Sqn. I will try and have this corrected.

    Thanks again

    Mark
