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 bigbooks 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.
