Mrs Ibbetson donated £5,000 September 1940, probably for a Spitfire. Serial and name not recorded.

Maggie May was a famous Liverpool prostitute who "robbed too many sailors and the captains of the whalers". Would the MAP approve?

Thanks Antoni you have give me a date to start from with the donation, with regards to Maggie May's
profession if the aircraft was named after her she could have helped the war effort by robbing
Goering of his ME 109s and maybe the MAP would have approved
