Need codes for 129 and 165 Sqn Spitfires in '45

Hi all.

I'm compiling a list of foreign (Non Norwegian) military aircraft that were involved in accidents after WW2. The list is getting longer by the day - I'm close to 80 by now. Unfortunately the time period between 1945 and 1950 is quite difficult to find anything on.

I am looking for the codes of the following Spitfires from 129 and 165 Sqn. They all crashed in Norway during the summer/autumn of '45. Any help is appreciated.

20.06.1945 Spitfire Mk IX PL188 129 Sqn Trondheim area
28.07.1945 Spitfire Mk IX MJ785 165 Sqn Trondheim
02.08.1945 Spitfire Mk IX PL262 165 Sqn Værnes
12.09.1945 Spitfire Mk IX PL317 165 Sqn Trondheimsfjorden

Only 165 Sqn one recorded was PL317/SK-A. I have a number of photos taken at Vaernes but only 2 show serials/codes, one of which is SK-A

Well I appreciate you looking up this for me, Chris. I assume they looked quite plain by then. Sky spinner and tail band?

Spinners do match the fuselage band
