    This BR.20 was shot down at Bromeswell, Suffolk on 11 November 1940.

    Re. the above picture of the Italian Bomber Shot Down 1940. Film ID:1635.13

    I have one of the crests that were removed from the tail of this plane.

    Written on the back of the crest is some information regarding, when and where the plane was shot down, also some details of injuries sustained by the crew.

    If you are interested I can photograph the crest and email it across to you.

    Regards
    Ian
