Stearman PT-17 - Morocco 1943 - anti-malaria

Looking for any additional info about 3 Stearman PT-17s and (their) 6 pilots which/who were sent to Morocco (NATOUSA) late 1943 for anti-malaria spraying purposes.
Before operational status could be achieved, the malaria season had nearly passed and only some experimental flights were executed.
Not sure if same three PT-17s were shipped to Italy for service with 327th Ferrying Squadron for identical purposes or replaced by other (3) Stearmans.

Of the 6 original PT-17 pilots, three had crop dusting experience back in the US.

All help welcome, thanks.

Regards,
Leendert
