Re: eBay: Allied intrest
The location of Bapaum is interesting

Could this be the aircraft of Pilot Officer Michael Robert Mudie #42073 of 615 May 15 1940 ?

Mudie made a forced-landing at Bapaume at this date after an engagement with Do17s

Not impossible Paul

The only date I have seen together with a photo of the aircraft is 25 May. which I assumed was the date when the photo was taken.

Hi all,

I have another 2 photo of same Gladiator, but serial number is not visible. If you are interesting, please send me INFO or e-mail and I can share with everybody, who is interesting.

Another option is, that this is one from machines destroyed on the ground 18.5.1940, but from my perspective this one looks very fine for this type of destroying - I have more photos on Gladiators, which looks destroyed on the ground (but I have them without place, so another possibility is, that these Gladiators are Belgian).

Re: eBay: Allied intrest
Can someone translate the back of the photo ?

I think it says

Eintranz Flutklarer
Einsam u. verlassen auf weiter
Fluv bei Bapaume

Re: eBay: Allied intrest
Thanks borborygm

If you see Bernard photo then there looks like some sort of combat damaged Under Gladiator cockpit

Can anyone confirm Mudie flying Gladiator on the date of his force landing at Bapaume
