Invasion stripes and serial codes

Post by Hellazapoppin »

Hello

Where on the fuselage would the serial code 5GH be painted?

On the photos I've seen the only bit of code showing is the 5G on the port side... Would the H have been painted over by the invasion stripes?

On the starboard side would the 5G been painted out and just the H showing?

Regards

Hello,

That's right that most of the 299 Squadron's photos are on the port side!
Yes,only 5G could be read. The other letter was covered.
Concerning the starboard side, I can't promise but I'll search.
Regards.
