Re: Bf109E W.Nr. 3762

"... without any special history....," that's what's odd! The main ID plate for this airplane survives. It was unearthed at RAF Kenley back in the 80s, part of the haul of similar plates collected by RAF intelligence during the war and disposed of by mass ground burial sometime thereafter. So this plane, or what was left of it, was in British hands at some point. It's hoped that evidence of that capture will surface and/or that surviving German records will reveal something. So far, however, nothing.
