Question for Old Salts Regarding Ships Flights

Recommended Posts

Can anyone who served around Wasp ships flights remember what the side numbers for the cabs belonging to HMS Dido, Ajax and Arethusa Flights. I'm trying to get the decals together for all the bits and pieces in the forthcoming Atlantic Models Leander kits, including the Wasp. I have most but not all as I am missing the three listed above, and I can't remember myself despite being in and around them all the time, way back then. Any help you can give will be much appreciated.

All the best

Have you tried Air Britain, they collect all sorts of aircraft info.

Ajax - 023 Flight Oct 70 to Aug 80- side number 421 eg XT426

Arethusa - 022 Flight Jun 77 to Dec 85- side number 426 eg XT437

Thanks for all your help here. I have now been able to complete the task in hand.

As a point of interest. I have come by a photo of Ajax's Wasp with the side number 460. Perhaps this was assigned to it before the ship went into refit for conversion to Ikara.??
