The third and fourth photos are a drum magazine from a MG 15!...
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
The Night Fighter Pilot who took out this Heinkel had an illustrious career it seems
What I find interesting is that at the time of this incident, he was part of 249 Squadron, which in May 2 months later was transferred via Aircraft Carrier to Malta, I wonder why he didn't transfer with them ?
Coincidentally, another well know member of 249 Squadron while based at Malta was a Buck McNair from Canada.
Saw a pile of them for sale from a well know collector years back, hard the find now.
Interesting the parts you have are so intact, as the aircraft was pretty much completely destroyed and burned - in fact the A.I report even states how little could be gleaned from the wreckage due to the level of destruction!
The FL50513 is an electric bomb arming device - part of an ETC50 bomb rack I believe - though this seems to have been an externally mounted bomb rack, so may explain its survival and is pretty interesting in itself - whoever took it would have probably been in trouble if the Intelligence team caught them!
