ITALIAN WRECKAGE IN THE WESTERN DESERT
This series of pictures tells its own story of the havoc caused by the R.A.F. among the Italian Air Force during the battle of the Western Desert and Libya. They were taken during a single day’s tour along what the Italians called the Road to Victory – the metalled highway they made from Sollum to Sidi Barrani – and on Fort Capuzzo aerodrome, a few miles from Bardia. Another C.R. 42 which attempted a landing with one of its wheels shot away.
EMPTY PETROL TANKS MYSTERY. ITALIANS CRASH GERMAN STUKAS IN BRITISH LINES. The last of the entire squadron of Nazi dive-bombers, piloted by Italians which crashed within the British Lines recently owing to petrol shortage. A mysterious message attached to the fuselage indicated that the crew after a miraculous escape in the inverted crash had ????ed away into the desert. The Stuka bore Italian markings and was fitted with a wooden propellor.
