    Hello,

    In early 1943 some 34 P38's left England for the Middle East.

    One, 42-12990 on the 15th February followed by the others from the 21st February.

    42-12993; 42-12996; 42-12997; 42-13001; 42-13002; 42-13005; 42-13006; 42-13007;
    42-13009; 42-13018; 42-13033; 42-13034; 42-13035; 42-13036; 42-13037; 42-13039;
    42-13040; 42-13043; 42-13045; 42-13047; 42-13053; 42-13055; 42-13060; 42-13063;

    Some of the 34 I have details on but does anyone have any info re the fate of the 25 I have listed here ?

    Long list but might get some answers ?
    Thanks in advance
    Alex
