I will come clean and admit that I am the new owner of said vehicle.

As P-O has kindly posted, I'm looking for any photos of this vehicle on the range... or indeed in service in 1944/45.

I'm hoping that someone may have pictures which show additional markings, externally and internally which have since worn off... I have downloaded copies of the photos shown on afvregister.org... but higher resolution versions would be really useful.

I am also looking for photos of other Fireflies which may help with the restoration - specific areas of interest are elevation mechanism, fire control, semi-auto mechanism and recoil guard - all parts i am missing and will need to find or make.

Many thanks

Tim

Welcom at the forum Tim
I have some pictures of her from around 2005. Have to dig into my old files, so give me some time.

I've uploaded some pictures, you can find them here: www.flickr.com/photos/...731194896/
I should have more of them but couldn't find them (for now), I'm still looking.
