There are several possibilities in investigating the flight records on Back to Normandy. All the flights are plotted on maps, sorted day by day, by squadron, by type of aircraft, by year or month, by location, and much more! Don't miss this!!!

I have just dug out the 49 MU report to which you refer and see that it does indeed confirm P9337 at New Romney as I suggested in my earlier post. Absolute confirmation of the wreckage i/d was also established I am told during the subsequent re-excavation at Map Ref 061255, approx half mile ESE of Hope Farm at a location I have as Cockreed Lane.
The pictures of the restoration of P9337, the aircraft his father was flying, are an addition that I thought he might also find of interest.
