I believe you are right.
No 48 was a former GR II/22 aircraft and it seems the type was to be replaced by the Potez 63.11

A number were used by various Ecole de Tir at various airfields (I have both Cazeaux and Istres for example)

Some aircraft had red stripes, some white and others both red and white.

Read Bloch 131 n°48 : GR 1/22, 2ème escadrille not GR II/22 ; n°48 left GR 1/22 on 19 décember 1939. Potez 63-11 arrived in September 1939 for GR 1/22 or I/22 (various writings)

Re: eBay: Allied intrest
Thanks Bertrand

I believe Avions said II/22, but I have now left my files at home, and nothing for I/22

Did II/22 operate the Bloch 131 at all? As far as I remember there were a whole range of aircraft listed with that unit. Are we perhaps talking about a printing error here??

#285 first link with Battle of n°12 squadron

This PH-A must be the L5538 given lost on 19 may 1940 close to Rethel following a fight. J-L Roba shows the same a/c with another angle page 56 of the good issue of Batailles Aériennes N° 67 "La RAF en France en 1939-1940 1re partie : Battle dans la tourmente Mai-juin 1940."
