1. Do a Google search for (in quotes) "DE208"
2. After a couple of pages, find a few references to the civil reg being "G-AGYU" (but don't necessarily trust those sources!)
3. Go to G-INFO and look up "G-AGYU" and verify the fields listed under "Display of Registration Mark Exemption Details". In this case, "G-AGYU" is indeed displaying "DE208".
That process has worked for me, but I guess there may be some obscure stuff which isn't listed anywhere on the 'net. It's a shame that G-INFO doesn't let you search on ALL fields!

No, no, no - don't tell him! The 'moths are MINE!
Seriously, I've not yet come across the ideal reference for this - I tend to use Tamsin's technique, though the printed "Military Aircraft Markings" from Ian Allen is pretty good, and features a section on "British Based Historic Aircraft in Overseas Markings"

Many thanks for all your help and I will try Tamsin's cheapeo way before going the expensive Andy route and buying a book!
I could never understand your fascination in the old tiger moths etc but I must admit my day at Woburn Abbey for the international moth rally was one of the most enjoyable days I have had out this year!
