Re: Shot Down Spitfire Italian Front

Hello
More likely to have been JL12?
Possible -
122 - 111 Sqn - 12 Jan 44.
125 - 232 Sqn - 17 July 43.
128 - 93 Sqn - 28 Nov 43.
But if ML
Then these are possible
120 132 Sqn - 18 June 44 (France).
128 317 Sqn - 16 September 44 ( not Italy).
Alex

I would agree with it being the JL range, and the last digit would seem to be limited to either 3, 8, or 9.

Re: Shot Down Spitfire Italian Front

Hello,
JL123
AB has
601/80/32 - To Training Delegation 1.11.45
So would have survived WW2.

125
232 Sqn - Engine cut on patrol;
Abandoned near Coniso 17-7-43.
128
93 Sqn
Hit trees low flying near Morino, 15m SE of Rome. 28-11-43.
129
To USAAF 31-8-43.
"Spitfire International" has basically, "12thAF 31.8.43; Fate unknown".

So I would favour JL128 as there seem to be a lot of branches in the picture.
Pilot I believe to have been-
F/O. SWAIN, Stanley Alfred - 136207 - RAFVR.
At rest at Casino War Cemetery, Italy.

Alex
