Re: eBay: Allied intrest

These Battles have appeared in many other EBay photos and using these and other sources I believe they are as follows.
On the left is K9349 RH-J of 88 Squadron, while on the right is L5583 JN-B of 150 Squadron. The location I believe to be Houssay airfield and this 'collection' was formed as late as 14 or 15 June 1940, just before the units evacuated to the UK. There is also the burnt out remains of a third Battle (L5466) behind these two in the foreground. The photos were probably taken after the Germans had gathered the wrecks on the airfield into one location.
Most photos as above are somewhat unclear for the serials and the angles are often not right, so if anyone comes across more images of this aircraft group it would be very helpful.
Ed, thanks for yet another great photo find.

Regards,

Martin Gleeson.
