Photographer's Remark

Owned by the Norwegian Spitfire Foundation, RR232 was repainted as the aircraft of Wing Commander Arne Berg of the RAF's No 132 (Norwegian) Wing, who had his national markings added on the wings and tailfin. Berg was killed in PV181 during a raid against Eelde (GRQ / EHGR), near Oostwold.
