Fred,

Please confirm the details you posted. I have no record of this aircraft with No.53 Squadron in May 1940 & what is the significance of the date?

Thank you.

Hello Peter again,
you asked about the signification of the date:
the war in Belgium took 18 days of battle and started on May 10th 1940.

Fred,

The closest I have is a Blenheim L9255, of either 53 or 18 Sqn, that made an emergency landing on May 11 somewhere in central Belgium.
