Supermarine Spitfire Mk.Vb (trop) of 417 (Canadian) squadron seen attacking a German airfield, somewhere in Tunisia. The Spitfire entered the war in North Africa towards the end and was not well suited to such tasks as shown here due to the aircraft's susceptibility to ground fire ; the three squadrons at the disposal of the Desert Air Force were usually retained for air superiority duties.
