    Default A/C S/N Anomalies - Help to Clear

    Hello All,
    Can somebody clear-up two a/c s/ns?
    ED209 supposed to be RCAF 428 Sqn (4 x POW, 2 x Evaders on 1943-07-13), and
    ED244 supposed to be RAF 76 Sqn (1 x KIA, 3 x POW, on 1943-07-29)
    The DB tells me there are no such a/c s/ns? Would appreciate corrections.
    TIA
    Peter Davies
