Re: eBay: Allied intrest

"Spitfire - the History" Morgan and Shacklady also records 234 and 91Sqn for P8439 no mention of 19Sqn. "Fighter Command Losses" records that P8439 was allotted to 19Sqn when it was lost. The photo in the first ebay link in Stig's post shows more clearly that the aircraft is definitely a "long range" Spitfire with the fixed overload tank under the port wing.
I am not an expert in these matters but personally I think the 91Sqn remains a possibility 91Sqn was formed from 421Flt which was established for Jim Crow work. Needs someone to check ORBs.
