Hi,  Very Happy

I am having a hard time getting this correct.

Can anyone help enlighten me as to whether or not Australian and New Zealand Spitfire MkV's and up, all, had Tropical Air Filters?

Any help or link in the right direction will be appreciated...perhaps even a small AVG style gift...

Thanks in advance,

FF

FF,

I have had a scan through 'Spitfire, Mustang and Kittyhawk in Australian Service' by Stewart Wilson and the link below, and can conclude that Australian MkVCs delivered to Australia were equipped with the Vokes filter.
The MkVIIIs however seem to be a mix, most photos indicate that most of this mark were not fitted with the Vokes filter.
This link describes all MkV and MKVIII delivered.

It would seem that all RNZAF Spitfires were operated by 485 Sqn (RNZAF) in the UK and therefore would not have been fitted with the filter system.
The list of aircraft can be found here:

Hope this helps
