Squadron Code

Recommended Posts

Hi folks can anyone help?

 

I am trying to find the Squadron code for aircraft of the USAAF 12 AF 428 BS who were part of the 310 BG.

 

They were based at Bentwaters in Suffolk for a brief period ( Oct - Nov 42 ) with B-25's before moving to Italy I think.

 

I have been going through all my books and come up blank and tried searching the web under everything I can think of to no avail,that's where you peeps come in!!

 

Does anyone have a clue?

 

Cheers for the help...

Just realised a mistake I've made. I said they were based at Bentwaters but it should have read Bungay ( also know as Flixton ) in Suffolk.

 

Hope that may give someone a clue to work on?

 

Cheers

I might also think about changing the title of the thread to incorporate "help" and even possibly a bit of detail on the squadron or the BG.

Doesn't look like they had squadron codes 'or' tail codes.

Yellow stripes on the tail and an emblem.

Many thanks for that info Mike. I was looking for one or two letter codes not just a tail flash as an Id....Know wonder I couldn't find it!!

 

Now just to find the 12 AF 47 BG which was based at Bury St Edmunds in Dec 42 and that's the last piece of the jigsaw so I can get on with step two of this mad project!!

 

Once again many thanks Mike.
