    Better to let Dave have it, as he was only one number out and that might have been a typo. Also I have to go to bed now and I won't be able to post anything until after work tomorrow.

    Thanks Jerry,good on ya mate.
    I think there may have been two military versions used in WW2
    It's only wiki info,not totally reliable,
    R3D-1 Military version of the DC-5 built for the Navy as 16-seat personnel carriers, three were produced. Douglas #606 crashed at Mines Field, June 1, 1940 -- #607 retired January 1946 and #608, believed to have been used briefly by Gen. MacArthur; retired January 1945

    R3D-2 Military version of the DC-5 built for the US Marine Corps as 22-seat paratrooper version, four were produced. Douglas #609 crashed in Jan. 1942 on island off Australian coast under enemy submarine fire. Stricken from inventory January 31, 1942. # 610, 611 and 612 retired October 1946

    The KLM DC5'S ended up in Australia I believe after the fall of the Dutch East Indies (Indonesia) in 1942 and were pressed into RAAF service.

    Gday Mo,
    Half way there mate.Davy Crocket is correct.
    I will take any one of two designations but M65 is not one of them.
    The M65 "Atomic Annie" was 240mm artillery piece.
