RAF friendly fire losses

I once read an RAF magazine that detailed the Mosquitoes that had been shot down over the UK due to friendly fire. It seemed to be page after page after page. Most seemed to have been shot down by Mustangs!

Is there a list on the net giving the number and type of all RAF aircraft lost to friendly aircraft fire in WWII?

What is the approx total number of such losses?

Hi Kevin

I never did receive a reply from Nonny! If you are still out there, Nonny, do let me know if you have found the magazine!

Kevin - e-mail on its way.

Cheers
Brian

Re: Friendly fire losses

Just before reading this I came across details of two Beaufighters of 29 Squadron shot down by AA fire near Rye. It wasn't a particularly uncommon event as Brian will surely testify!!
