Hi,

based on my info, it is QJ-E BR523, belly landed Aug 19,1942 by Lt. Samouelle, 92 Squadron.

I have another 2 photos and plane looks same.

Hi Paul,

check A History of the Mediterranean Air War, 1940-1945: Volume 2 - page 311 - view from right side.
Same picture is in Osprey Spitfire Aces of North Africa and Italy - looks at this link:
https://books.google.cz/books?id=yVW...0BR523&f=false

Next photos from e-bay I will send to you via e-mail, please send it to me.

Hi all,

photos posted on different forum (with more space) :

http://www.modelari.org/viewtopic.ph...p=37158#p37158

Looks like same plane, but the upper propeller blade looks different like the photo from HMAW or Osprey books - so probably 2 different planes.

There is also a third Gladiator photo

https://www.ebay.de/itm/Foto-Luftwaf...75.c100623.m-1

If it is what it looks like it was supposed to have gone down with HMS Glorious on her way back from Norwegian waters.
Anyone who knows more?? :confused:

Cheers

Well it may help solve some other mystery - We now know it was not on Glorious - So one that was "not", must have been

So some work will need to be done to re-appraise

"if you accept N5908 as the aircraft crashed by Falkson at Bodo on the 26th"
