Re: 457 Sqn RAAF Spitfire

Hello,
Not much help, but ex- RAF serial number was MV129 ,perhaps a member has some details of her while in that service. Also the RAAF squadron code was "ZP" which most likely was carried on the a/c.

Re: 457 Sqn RAAF Spitfire

Thanks for your input Alex , the bailout occurred during a strafing attack on

Kaung ,North Borneo at approx 1610 hour.

He was rescued within 24 hours after avoiding the Japanese, with help from

friendly locals by Catalina.

Regards Mike
