Hi Peter

May I sneak in under the guise of 'Brian' and ask you another, before you shelve your files on AufklGrObdL? On 1 July, two Do215 FTR from ops, one falling to 616 Squadron at 1050, the other to 64/145 Squadrons between 1852-1955. Are you able to provide similar details, please?

See you soon
