    Did the R.A.F. ever fly the Douglas B-18? I remember reading somewhere that the British had assigned it a name (Digby) but I never found out if the actually used the type.

    It was the RCAF that used the Digby, mainly in the maritime patrol role. U-520 was sunk by a Digby belonging to No. 10 sqn RCAF in Oct 1942.
