The Blenheim Mk IV did saw action above Singapore.
I know it has been there.
But in what numbers?

Thanks in advance.

Blenheims did see service in the Far East, over Singapore, Malaya, Sumatra and Java. Several squadrons were sent to the Far East; as for the total number of Blenheims I have no reliable information but I would put the number at between 50 and 100. But this is at best a very rough estimate.

KNIL, Koninkijke, Nederlandse Indische Luchtmacht?

KNIL means Koninklijk Nederlandsch-Indisch Leger, actually. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif The ML-KNIL (ML = Militaire Luchtvaart) did not use any Blenheims at all- only the Commonwealth did. Both Mk.Is and Mk.IVs saw service during the campaign for the Malay Barrier.
