Roger Andrews comments... A flight of Spitfire Mk Vs, most likely with with 73 OTU in 1944/45. JK926/1 and JG933/6 both served with 73 OTU at that time. The aircraft would seem to have been repainted in the day fighter scheme, at a M.U. in the M.E.

73 OTU reopened at Abu Sueir in Feb 1943, moving to Fayid in June 1944 where it disbanded on 25 September 1945.
