Since MA222 is known to have served with 80OTU before being handed over to Armée de l'Air, I would say you are very much correct.

Cheers

Hi Stig,

yes and thanks . do you have some info about service of this machine at France? I have just short info, that this machine served in Morocco….and of course during service by Polish squadrons (315., 303., 308., maybe 317. Sq and then 229. Sq).

Hi Faenor

It seems the French were not very keen to record their Spitfires in detail.
This aircraft was filed in French records as ML222 and is known to have been allocated to France on 8 March 1946 and to have arrived into BE 708 at Meknès on 14 March the same year. It was coded 'A'
Aircraft is mentioned in records both in 1949 and Nov 1950, but then nothing further is known.
I doubt it ever returned to France (record keeping was much better there than in North Africa, it seems), so in all likelyhood it was wfu some time after 1951 and probably scrapped by some local dealer.

Cheers
Stig

PS: To understand the French thinking regarding British aircraft and their serial numbers, it seems at least pilots basically never understood the point with prefix letters, so most pilots and probably a lot of the record keeping clerks simply left out such "annoying details" and what we have left are just the digits, which of course makes life a lot easier for the historians interested in details like that.... :)
