RAF No.79 Sqn, Wanjing, Burma, November 1944.
In May 1944, No. 79 Squadron was withdrawn for re-equipment with Thunderbolts that were to generally replace Hurricanes in the fighter bomber role and were taken into action in September. Ground attack and escort missions occupied the Squadron until the end of the war and it disbanded on 30 December 1945. This P-47D-30 was based at Wangjing from November 1944 and was painted with the medium and dark due national insignia adopted in Southeast Asia to avoid confusion with the red 'meatball' of the Japanese aircraft. Theatre stripes appear on the wings, fin and tailplane.
