Bit of a long shot, a wee while back I posted about Strathallan Airfield. I am currently researching something and wondered if anyone had pictures of a particular aircraft which was on display in the hangar. It was a Westland Lysander No. V9441 with the 'AR' markings of the RAF 309 (Polish) Squadron. It would have the Polish checkerboard flag before the RAF roundel on the fuselage. This is for a project I am working on.
Pictures do exist, but are subject to copyright and finding the owners is proving hard if not impossible. If I use a photo I will credit whoever it belongs to. It is possible that this aircraft was repainted after restoration at Strathallan, other aircraft numbers it could be shown as are, V9367 or V9552.

I could send you a pic, if you like.
This aircraft is really RCAF 1582.
It's civil reg is G-AZWT and it can be found at Old Warden these days, marked as 'V9367'.
