    Steve, I do not know what is your input and what should be the output but have you tried this:

    http://users.rcn.com/jeremy.k/serialSearch.html

    Writing a RAF serial you can search for the original USAAF and other serial.

    Or simply search the whole lists here:

    To expand on the previous response, there is an article here which lists all the serials:

    I found this using Google search: Lockheed Ventura RAF

    Do we know which Ventura airframes were allocated to the Met Sqns (519/521). Makes checking the casualty/trade a bit easier!
