  • "Formation of American Mustang planes" - actually these are aircraft of No. 400 Squadron RCAF (Royal Canadian Air Force).

    "Pilots of an Army Co-operation Squadron walk towards their Mustang aircraft" - the two men featured are F/L Duncan "Bitsy" Grant, and F/L John Morton. (Sadly Grant was killed shortly after this film was made, on 22 September 1943).
