Algiers-Maison Blanche, Algeria, late 1941. This aircraft is one of the 14 escaping D.520s that reached Algeria after having fought against the British in Syria in June-July of 1941. It wears full regulation 'neutrality bands' on the engine cowling and empennage (complete with red propeller spinner), but omits both the fuselage roundel and white band in a fine example of the freedom with which the directives were applied within the Armee de l'Air. The 'rieur' [winged comedy mask] emblem on the tail is the insignia of GC III/6's 6 Escadrille. (Camouflage: Kaki/ Terre de Sienne - aka Terre fonce-/ Gris bleu fonce upper surfaces with Gris bleu clair undersurfaces).
