  10. Goedenmiddag Bozothenutter Ik heb een klein stukje gevonden waarvan ik niet zeker weet of het helpt:- Sea Fury FB.51 Taak jager/bommenwerper Totaal in dienst. 25 Operationeel juli 1951 - januari 1957 In gebruik bij VSQ.3 en VSQ.860 In oktober 1946 werd een eerste order geplaatst voor de levering van 10 Hawker Seafury FMk.50 jagers.

Thank you, keep safe. RR (Chris)
