British Bogeys



On this page you'll find photos of P-40s in RAF markings for which I have little or no info.

If you have any information pertaining to these photos, please contact the webmaster.



This photo of an unidentified RAF Tomahawk was found in a gallery on the SmugMug photo-sharing site.
The gallery, created by Mr. Stuart Lamb, is made up of photos from an album put together by the late
Gilbert C. Lamb, (1915-2005) an RAF veteran who served in North Africa. I've cleaned up and enhanced
the image a bit, but the original may be seen HERE.

I have no info for this Kittyhawk I/Ia other than it was photographed by Hart Preston,
apparently from a USAAF C-47 and presumably somewhere in the MTO.

I believe the next three images all show the same Tomahawk, (no doubt about the first two) and at first
I thought that it might be the same ship shown in the photo above. However, there are various inconsistencies...
most notably that of the broken demarcation line between the upper and lower colors at the aft end of
the wingroot. The fuel spill staining is also somewhat inconsistent, although I am still wondering!

This unidentified Tomahawk was snapped along with a couple of Hurris at Takoradi, Gold Coast, West Africa.

Regrettably, I kept no record as to the source of this image showing an RAF Kittyhawk III.
Please contact the webmaster if you have info about the Hawk shown, or its original source.
