Listees,

                Can anyone help with the request for serial numbers and
other markings on any of these R.E.8s?  Can anyone help me with info on the
"ground-pounder" part of the diorama?  How big were Vickers ammo boxes,
etc.?

                                Mike

Mick,

                Do you or any member(s) know the serial numbers of any of
the No. 9 Squadron R.E.8s that participated in the ammunition drops on 31
Jul 1918 with the Australians?  I've been reading Michael Molkentin's Fire
in the Sky and thought what an interesting diorama could be developed by
modifying a Wingnut R.E.8 and adding a couple of figures "bombing it up"
with ammunition boxes.

                                Mike Vice
