Hello all,
My father was a LAC (Airframes) working on this kite in the mid/late 40's (flown by Battle of Britain hero "Ginger" Lacey and others), I'd like to find out when my Dad and YB-A were in the same places (he was in India, Burma, Ceylon, Singapore and Japan); the production schedule for RN135 is 6MU 8-1-45 222; MU 5-2-45; Empire Paragon 12-2-45; India 12-4-45; 17S Japan 28-9-46; SOC 24-3-48, so I'm looking at India and post war Japan operations.
I think he was with 7132SE but I'm still waiting on info from the RAF about his service record to confirm all his postings.
Anyone know how I can find out more specific info for the YB-A bird? Operational logs, maintenance logs - anything! Photos of course!
I know it's a long shot but I have to ask.

Thanks for your help

Jim Stallard
