Pat C

RAF Thunderbolt II HD196 "Elaine II"

Recommended Posts

OK Chaps - after your great help with Wildcat VIs this is my latest attempt to find pics of an aircraft that features in profiles. As Mrs Pat C is "Elaine I" was hoping to do "Elaine II" which features in several profiles as HD196 "GQ-B" of 134 squadron. But can find no pictures of this aircraft including in the Geoff Thomas book. Grateful if anyone can think of any other sources that may have a photo of this aircraft.

As you say, Thomas' book is the "go-to" source for RAF Thunderbolts.  Failing that, I would look at the photos in the Hall Park Warpaint book (probably not many of them) and what MJF Bowyer came up with, both in Fighting Colours and the Airfix Magazine series he based it on (ISTR you need one of the 1968 issues).  Bowyer was off home turf when describing SEAC colours and markings so his text may not have stood the passage of time too well but the photos should still be good.
