I've just discovered that my great uncle, G. S. Nordstand, flew in RAF squadron 112 in WWII (flying the Kittyhawk III?). Here he is standing 8th from left:
I've also found reference to him performing a bombing recce in Italy.
I'd like to build his aircraft, but not really sure about what the codes on this page represent. Or where to look to find out more. Any suggestions?
I also vaguely remember being a kid and seeing a picture of him standing on the wing of a Typhoon, but I could be confusing things.
112 used GA as their squadron designator from mid '41 until the end of the war.
AFAIK they were exclusively used in the MTO (Nth Africa, Italy perhaps Sth France. They used all versions of the Allison engined P-40 except the 'N", then went on to the P-51C & D still using the GA unit code.
