Yeah, this I got from RAF Owned, RCAF Operated, JA100 to JN999
To No. 417 (F) Squadron, RCAF in Italy on 31 May 1944, after returning from loan to USAAF. Failed to return from operations on 26 July 1944.

That is all I could find on this aircraft, so thought I would ask to see if anyone else could come up with anything, as always "Thank You" so much for the help on this, when one gets into researching like this, it really opens ones eyes to what really happened !
