    Default British-Argentinian pilots

    Hello,

    Does exist a list of the Argentinians, mostly with British parentage, who served the RAF and RCAF during the War?
    I know that exist a book, written in Spanish, "Alas de Trueno" but this book is unfoundable and I don't know if a such list has been published in this book.

    Thanks

    Phil

    Default Books

    Hi

    Reference your unobtainable book. Have you tried either Alibris or Abe Books as I have found them very good for out of print books?

    Abe Books is my friend. Have found many 'out of print' or hard to find books via them, sometimes at surprisingly low prices and in very good condition.
