100 Sqn Vickers Vildebeest Battle of Endau 1942

Recommended Posts

A long shot, but maybe some-one has the information.

 

I am looking for the code letter of Sqn Ldr Ian Rowland's Vickers Vildebeest during the battle of Endau.

 

The book Bloody Shambles (vol.2) gives the serial number as K6379, but doesn't give a squadron code letter.

 

Anyone ha san answer?

'Fraid there's no surviving records indicating the code letter assigned to Rowland's Vildebeest.  Given that nobody can prove you wrong, you could just give it the letter 'A' since many squadron commanders' aircraft carried that letter.  It won't be 100% accurate (unless you happen to be 1-in-26 lucky) but, as a memorial to a very brave man, I think such pedantry would be misplaced.  Honour the men who flew those aircraft and good luck with your build.


Cheers,

Mark
