I bought this from ebay - the seller promoted it as an Italian bomber, but I am pretty sure it isn't. The Italians were big on tri motors & this one ain't. It's still interesting, though & no one else bid so I got it inexpensively.

So is it Free French? North African desert for sure. SW

Not up on French-or British-twin engined bombers, but that is defnitely the Cross of Lorrane on the right side-the Regia Aerinautica insignia was a white circle with three fasces
on it.

After going through what I have on French bombers - I'd say "Think Brtish". The picture isn't wonderul, but it looks a lot like a Blenheim to me. Or maybe a Bolingbroke (a Canadian variant).

Well, it ain't a Lysander, that's for sure...

It's a Blenheim. Look at the nose.
