I can confirm the following:

In about half an hour before Razor was Rebel 41 (I think), Typhoon, Tail Code EB-R, three passes, dry strafe.

Razor 31 Tail Code 304 (with XI Sqn marks)
Razor 32 Tail Code 353

Both called in for 45 minutes work, hot and dry strafe, with 90 rounds each.

Andy.

PS. That avatar is of me upstairs at Holbeach back in the early 2000's. I am no longer serving (retired 2007). I merely went back for the first time since 2007 armed with nothing more than me camera. :D
