Log of Casualtiy Claims, Assessments and Losses", sheet No. 123 gives the same information. Thank you for the correction. Best regards, Horst Weber
Hello Horst - sorry to advise you that 350 (Belgian) Squadron was also operating Spitfire XIV's, as part of the Lympne Wing - they joined 125 Wing at Y.32 Ophoven/Zwartberg on 31 December 1944, just in time to, involuntarily, take part in Operation Bodenplatte on the receiving end Allan
