    Colour of Codes - 1690 BDTF Aircraft?

    This probably isn't going to be easy to answer, but does anyone know what colour code letters this unit's aircraft would have carried.? I'm particularly thinking about its Hurricanes and Martinets. Any help welcomed!

    I'd guess Sky, certainly for the Hurricanes - they tended to have 'fighter' colours. e.g. the Spit illustrated here:

    Thanks Dave, I like the logic and will go with that if nothing more certain comes up. What's interesting is that the Unit was apparently allocated the code '9M', the Spitfire doesn't carry it. Unfortunately, photos of this Unit are almost non-existent. Thanks again. Andrew
