During World War 2, captured aircraft in working condition were quickly pressed into service and it was not unusual to find captured Spitfires and Hurricanes in German marketings, and no different on the Allied side as well. The South Africans also used captured aircraft and here’s some visual proof. This is a captured German Messerschmitt Bf 109F, given South African Air Force markings and serial ‘KJ-?’, parked on the airfield at Martuba No.4 Landing Ground in North Africa, January 1943. It was “operated” by No. 4 Squadron, South African Air Force. Note tail of B-24 Liberator on right.
