Re: Wellington R5445


Thanks for clearing that mistake ! I thought of that possibility but as R 5445 was repeated several times in the ORB, I became curious.

W 5445 would perfectly fit into a number of Wellingtons with 'Type 423' modification (for carrying a 4000 lb HC Cookie).

For identifying Wellington Mk.I's with Type 423 modification I am afraid that I have to check each ORB of 40, 57, 99 and other squadrons...

Again many thanks! Best regards, Marcel
