    I dont know if that will help. The picture was taken in Baranowicze October 1920. 3-a Eskadra Wywiadowcza at that time had 6 airplanes Bregute, and was together with 39-a eskadra (16 Eskadra Wywiadowcza) under V dyonu lotniczego under mjr. Kossowski

    Hi Mariusz, thanks for your help. What is the source for the photos you posted?

    It is an interesting period of history. Many people are totally unaware of the earlier period and the Allied intevention in the Russian civil war especially between 1918-1920 when the British Royal Air Force sent three sqaudrons No.s 221, 266 and 47 to fight alongside General Denikin (leader o fthe White Russian forces) in South Russia. The RAF launched attacks on Red Army troops, ships and aircraft, and bombed Grozney, Astrokhan and Tsaritsin (later renamed Stalingrad), which was captured by British tanks!
    But that is for another thread
