    Again as I commented before…

    About Bristol Beaufighter VIII

    Beaufighter Mk VIII
    Proposed Australian-built variant with Hercules 17 engines, not built.

      It is interesting Pierre. The log book (an official record and signed by the CO) and journal all refer to the Mk.VIII. I have no other squadron logs etc to cross reference with, so am currently transcribing the journal entries verbatim.

        Very strange indeed.

        I would put a footnote when you encounter this entry to let your readers know.
        This is not nitpicking in any way. Errors are found everywhere. It shows your readers how you take this seriously.
