    Hello Mr. Verney, I am an amateur aviation historian with an interest in postwar photo reconnaissance Mosquito by the RAF. I was wondering if you had an opportunity to speak with the Squadron 13 Mosquito pilots when you were stationed in Egypt in 1952? By some accounts they were involved in some interesting missions over Soviet territory in 1949 in their PR.34 Mosquitos, and this is of great interest to me. In addition, I have a number of photos showing the Mosquitos in PRU blue or high speed silver, but can't seem to find a date where the squadron changed from one to another. Do you recall if Squadron 13 utilized both color schemes during the 1949-1952 period? Many thanks, and as the grandson of a British army veteran, Cypriot National Army, I send my thanks and wish to convey my admiration for your brave service. Best wishes.
