Raf Squadron Codes And Serial Numbers

I haven't been able to find anything definite on the particular aircraft you posted the pic of. But you are right, only two Squadrons used the Whirlwind, 263 Squadron and 137 squadron, and the squadron codes for 263 were HE. (Those for 237 were SF). The Whirlwind displayed the codes in a (slightly) unusual way, with the individual letter forward of the RAF roundel on the port side, the opposite to standard practice. I've only been able to find the following individual codes and serial numbers for 263 Squadron so far; H-HE serial No. P7011 L-HE serial No. P7062 V-HE serial No.

P6969 Pictures of 'L' and 'V' do not show the shark's mouth marking, 'H' is unknown. If I find anything further, I'll let you know. I'm involved in the restoration of Spitfire NH749, an FR Mk.XIVe. I read this post regarding the colour of the crowbar and the various placement of the stencils inside the door. VERY interesting!! D Antoni to ask the source of this info but recieved a very short reply sending me to the Key Publishing website which really doesn't have a functional search capability.

With reference to the comment above saying that different factories applied the stencils differently, our aircraft was assembled at Aldermaston in early 1945. Do you have any thoughts as to how we should finish our cockpit door? We want this aircraft to be as authentic as possible, especially this very publicly visible item! Also, we've been going crazy trying to find proper direction regarding handling and servicing stencils and also the correct colour for engine instrument bezels. Any info would be greatly appreciated. were querying the RN Corsairs with Pacific Fleet markings; they certainly saw service with Task Force 57 alongside the US Navy hence the American-style national markings. They were on the 4 fleet carriers along with Avengers, Seafires and Barracudas. In fact the last VC of the war was awarded to Lt.

R H Gray (Canadian) from 1841 Sqn. On 'Formidable' on 9 Aug.

1945; his Corsair IV KD658 was marked ' 115--X ' and was Glossy Sea Blue o/a. The Corsair with the European -style roundels was in a training squadron so kert the earlier markings. Very late in the Pacific war some RN planes reverted to these olderstyles retaining the red sections.

I've now got two RAf models to do, Hasegawa's 1/48th Typhoon IB and Tamiya's 1/48th RAF Mustang III. So three tins of paint should cover the lot!! Should be easy to match to the correct colour, not like the Luftwaffe with all those varieties! I would be glad to here the Medium Sea Gray/Ocean Gray/Dark Green combinations that every one uses. Tamiya seem to be producing a range of more accurate acrylics BUT ONLY IN SPRAY CANS!!!! Not sure if this has been posted or how accurate it is bu/Digital%20RAF%20WW2%20Colours.pdft this is a digital interpretation of RAF colours.

First of all the link is written incorrectly I'm afraid.
