The text on the nose on the
Spitfire above reads "Argentine British Squadron"
My name is Claudio Meunier aviation historian /author of several books about the
Argentinians in the RAF, RCAF and Fleet Air Arm during world war two.
I published three big books and the first and second are sold out but the other its
available. The last called Born to honour and had some drawings of the planes of
Argentinians used in the war.
