Just a couple of nice photos of a PR9 that I came across that show the colour scheme and markings.

Need it now! The Chileans lend some to the Argentines during the 1982 war to spy the UK forces. This was kept in secret for some years! As the Kasselbrut campaign arrived, this is a must to have! Good timing!! :yes:

afaik the rumour was that the RAF operated some PR.9s from Chile during the Falklands, would have been odd if Chile had also lent some to Argentina ...

in fact I think that the Chilean PR.9s actually were the RAF ones left as a "thank you".
