    Hi Adrian,
    I was in touch with the Sunderland trust seeking info on T9088 to build a model for my mother and to my surprise they provided me with what I think is the only existing picture of T9088 when she was new inservice with 228 Squadron, being used as an Admirals barge for Admiral Sir Percy Noble, Commander in Chief, Western Approaches.

    Default T9088 as she could have looked when lost

    Hi again Adrian,
    Just to let you know I got a bit more from the Sunderland Trust and built a model based on that info, as a Mk.2 T9088 would have had a chiseled hull not the more streamline version on the Corgi model and although she could have had a mid upper gun or not (no records kept) I decided to go with one based on the fact it was from an OTU, the markings I had made as a special order hope you like the results.

    Sad. I had a relative in a Latvian police battalion (no not the one that killed Jews) he was killed somewhere around 1942 1943, another relative of mine though that he was in the rkka, but he later was notified that he was found dead in a haystack. Iím still wondering how he died.Raul
