Hi,
Iím struggling to get some details and was wondering if someone can help and clarify missing bits and pieces. Iíve attached a list of Hurricanes and Spitfires for which Iím trying to find code letters or serial numbers. I know there are guys with huge knowledge, who may fill the gaps.

Hurricane I GZ-? P6546
Hurricane I GZ-? V6572

601 Sqn

Spitfires:

74 Sqn
Spitfire I ZP-? X4167

Iím also looking for individual code letters and serial numbers for:
Hurricane I AF-? from 607 Sqn, flying which P/O Wlasnowolski claimed Do 17 over Poole on 15.9.40;
Hurricane I AF-? from 607 Sqn, flying which P/O Surma claimed Bf 109 SE of St Catherineís Point on 26.9.40
and
Hurricane I DZ-? from 151 Sqn, flying which P/O Surma claimed He 111 prob. over Redlett on 30.8.40

Any help, advices and hints very much appreciated.

I have the following identities for three of the Hurricanes:
V6614 GN-B
P5193 SD-O
P5194 SD-J
I have to admit, though, that I cannot quote my sources for these.

Can only confirm those above, but P6546 was a Fairy Battle

Re: Hurricane & Spitfire code letters and serial numbers

Thank you guys

Yes, you're right Tuck re Battle number. I didn't check Air - Britain before assuming that my source was right.
In that case, does anyone know which plane was flown on 22nd of August 1940 by Karol Pniak, Polish pilot of 32 Sqn?

Regards
Peter
