My name is Kornel. I am writting from Poland. I am currently building a 1/48 scale model of C-47 "Turf and Sport Special" since it was one of aircraft carrying paratroopers of 1st Polish Independent Parachute Brigade to Holland during Market-Garden operation.. The plane took polish paratroopers to Holland on Sept. 21st 1944 but “Turf” was one of the machines which came back to England due bad weather and communication mistakes without dropping the men. I am currently looking for the chalk number which was applied to the plane for the polish drop. Unfortunately I did not find anything yet. Is there a chance you could help me find this chalk number ?

I am also preparing to build a model of Airspeed Horsa Mk.I glider carrying elements of polish parachute brigade to Holland. The problem is that I cannot find any information on the serial numbers that these gliders carried. All that I know is that they were towed by planes from RAF's 297 sqn and that their chalk numbers were 890-899. Do you have any knowledge in this matter ?

I would be very grateful for any help from you.

Best Wishes
Kornel Nowicki
