Title: RR 209
Post by: IanM on May 20, 2013, 10:17:42 AM
Can any one tell a bit more about this IXe serial number RR209
I know that she was:
Built in October 1944 sold to Denmark May 1948
Has any one a photo of her while in the RAF ?  Or know the ID codes and how she was painted.

Thanks in advance.
