    Default Marauder FB415 ever in RAF/SAAF service?

    An USAAF loss list for April 1945 says that AT-23B (a B-26C Marauder subtype) with serial 41-35417 was declared salvaged on the 18th of that month.
    The record card for this Marauder also has OXO as destination, which I believe was the code for an assignment in the ETO.

    A majority of other online info seems to suggest however that this B-26C 41-35417 was transferred to the RAF/SAAF as FB415.

    Was there ever a Marauder FB415 in RAF/SAAF service and if so, what squadron? And if it wasn't ex-41-35417, then what former serial?

    Thanks for the info & regards,

    Leendert

    FB415 is in a black-out block: the nearest Marauder is FB418. The previous serial was a Mustang at FB399.

    Graham,

    Thanks for this info. I think quite some Marauder websites need some update on this...

    OXO in my post should read as SOXO: 8th AF assignment.

    Regards,

    Leendert
