I would say buyer beware. In addition to a number being stolen from the NA a few years ago, there have been a number of fakes circulating. I am not saying these are not genuine but without providence I would steer well clear.

Chris,
I would say this is not one of the combat reports stolen from the PRO back in the late 80's/early 90's. Whether it is genuine I cannot say. However, my files say that there is an original at CR: Air 50/30-312&313.

Enjoy!

Frank.

The combat report is in AIR 50/30/82, although this one is hand written rather than nicely typed up.
