Re: Friendly fire WWII

333 Sqn loss was discussed on the RAF forums last week IIRC. Names of crew and faulty pilots were given (IIRC again).

Re: Friendly fire WWII

Hi Laurent

Being a rather ignorant person I do not understand what you mean! Where can I find the discussion on the 333 Sqn loss? What RAF forums? And was does IIRC mean? Apologies for being dumb!

Re: Friendly fire WWII

Once again my sincere thanks, guys.

Laurent - I have now found the RAF Forum and have extracted details of the 333 Squadron Mosquito - thanks, and also to you John and Andy. I'm new to websites and am only just finding my way around - as is pretty obvious!! Thanks also Stephane for the 303/He115 connection - I will dig further during my next visit to Kew.

What a great site and with so many generous and knowledgeable contributors. Keep 'em coming!

Cheers
Brian

Re: Friendly fire WWII

Hi guys

Just a reminder to Six Nifty .50s - were implied that you would let me have details of the USAAF Mosquitos (25thBG) that fell to friendly fire. Cheers.

Chris - I thought that you might be able to help with the NF friendly fire incidents mentioned above. I do hope so. Sorry I couldn't meet up with you this week.

Brian
