    Hello,
    Check
    https://saafww2pilots3.yolasite.com/raymond-clark-photographs.php
    and his logbook at
    http://saafww2pilots3.yolasite.com/r...k-log-book.php
    Many Spits of 1435 Sqn at various locations, including Vis island and Falconara.
    I mentioned these links last year on a Croatian modellers forum, as there are also photos of Croatian Bf 109 Black 4 at Falconara.

    I am trying to find out is that bare-metal Spitfire on Vis, X-V actually MH693.

    Possibly there is a photo of it in Italy with serial visible?

    More likely it is MH654. Can anyone confirm?
