Dear Heather please accpet my aologies for contacting you in this way but I am actually trying to find your brother Laurence and also to check whetherwe have the correct details for Kenneth. I am the OLd Lawrentian Secretary at their old school St Lawrence College. We have had Laurence's copy of the yearly magazine returned to us from Boston and have no further address to contact him. We have Kenneth listed at an address (Cedar Gdns) though just checking 192.com I'm not sure if that is still current. WEould you be able to possibly help us reestablish contact as we wold love to ensure they received the magazine and kept in touch? Thank you for your time.

To whom it may concern, does anyone know if/where info might exist as to who actually flew those first spitfires for 19 squadron? My Great Uncle Arthur Gordon (36075) was a flt lt with the squadron at the time, and I have an original (I think) print of one of the photos of the 6 planes in flight, and I've always wondered if he was actually flying one! Cheers! Damon Anderson

Hi, I am interested in one particular Spitfire of 73 squadron i.e. JL350 History: 15MU 11-4-43 76MU 22-4-43 Fort Thompson 3-5-43 Casablanca 17-5-43 73S Shot down by flak off Brac 17-4-44 (crased at Makarska, Yugoslavia) It sems that the aircraft had azure blue underside. Also its seems to had overpainted upper surface in dark gray/dark green camo instead of desert one. Can anyone confirm this or give me the right camo scheme with the FS or Humbrol/Revell paint numbers. Thanks Please, write me back at e-mail : gojak02@net.hr thanks, Srdjan
