39 Squadron RAF, in Italy343 viewsInteresting though it has been, Prefect, to learn about the Algerine Class of minesweepers, it must be time for another aeroplane. Here is a 39 Squadron Canberra PR9 from Luqa on detachment to Villa Franca, Verona, in the mid 1960's. Back of the photograph is stamped " 3A Aerobrigata" (Aeronautica Militaire). Not sure if the aircrew are arriving or departing. 1 commentsIvan
