1941 saw the arrival of the latest variant of the Bristol Beaufighter, the Mk. IC. The Mk. IC entered
active service on Malta in May 1941 with the No. 252 Squadron. They proved extremely effective
destroying Axis shipping, aircraft and ground strafing in the Mediterranean region. Because the
Mk. IC could be adapted to carry 250 or 500 pounds bombs along with its stellar performance,
Coastal Command replaced their aging Beauforts and Blenheims with the Beaufighter. The Mk.
IC was used by Britain, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand.
Beaufighter Mk.IC msn T4924 was built by the Fairey Aviation Co. in Stockton, UK and delivered
to the RAAF on April 20, 1942. It was assigned A19-5 and arrived at 30 Squadron on June 15,
1942 with the code F. 30 Squadron was established as a long-range fighter squadron attacking
Japanese shipping and coastal bases. In March 1943, 30 Squadron took part in the Battle of the
Bismarck Sea where heavy losses were inflicted on the Japanese. After incurring various types of
damage and repairs over two years the aircraft came to a tragic end on December 13, 1944.
