Re: eBay: Allied intrest

hmmmmm...probably Spitfire K9791 lost 17.8.1940 - ending part of serial number fit to Bertrand H. photo, but in my collection this plane have damaged propeller and not so fine like on these both photos.

Hi all,

photo of "wellington " from 2.7.1940:

....but geodetic structure is not visible, same turret is on the Whitley and 1 was lost on night 01-02 of July 1940 - serial number N1461 GE-M from 58. squadron. As I know, this machine crashed in the target area - Kiel dockyard.
My question is, if the Kothausen is a part of Kiel.

Re: eBay: Allied intrest
Interesting view of a PR Spitfire, is this another of K9791 or another a/c ?
