Hi,

When Free French Groupe Lorraine (aka No. 342 Squadron) left the R.A.F. for the French Armée de l'Air on 02/12/1945 the unit handed over their Mitchell bomber and began their conversion training on Mosquito at No. 16 OTU. Does anybody know when they received (date ?) their first Mosquito ? The conversion was the first step as it was to become Groupe de Reconnaissance 1/20 “Lorraine”, and no more a medium bomber Squadron.


TIA
