A piece of Dutch in australian aviation history. All operationally used RAAF B25's were paid for by the Dutch and no 2 sq operated in conjecture with the Dutch 18sq.
After the war the Aussies scrapepd them all. Wished they'd saved one or two for us...
The B-25 Mitchell was one of the most numerous medium bombers used in WW2, and it fought with three major users, the Americans, the Soviets and the British. However other countries received Mitchells during the war and amongst these was Australia which took 50 aircraft on charge, most of which came from Dutch orders. They were used by a single unit, No.2 Squadron, during the war in the Pacific. With over 30 photographs, some seen for the first time, 4 colour profiles, most with wonderful nose art, the full story of the B-25 in Australian service is narrated. This includes their full operational records and is a very good reference for modellers and historians. 28 pages, plus one page of colour artwork, over 30 photos.
