    Hello Col,

    My error.

    Thanks for the correction.
    Info in "The price of Peace" page 369 has PM823. Most likely a printers typo.

    Henk's list has BM823.

    Thanks again

    Powell - He was killed whilst flying in a Spitfire of No 32 Sqn, which crashed and caught fire after striking the ground during a practice strafe against a group of 'Priest' self-propelled guns.
