Re: eBay: Allied intrest

I hate to dispute anything with you ! However I believe the 'Trier' Hampden QR-P is L4146 lost in the early hours of 24 May 1940 in the Black Forest area. This one has grass not sand under it.
While I cannot see a serial in any photo on some images one can make out the prewar code 'NM' of 76 Squadron which was the owner of L4146 prior to its use by 61 Squadron.
I believe also Bill Chorley has recorded it incorrectly as 'QR-R' but that is probably a typo.
Ironically L4146 had an Irishman on board too !

That's fine. I believe you are right. The Germans would not have allowed civilians (particularly Dutch), to wander around a downed aircraft. I suspected the Hampden had been moved from a tidal area to higher ground.
