I have acquired prop hub and blade that probably belonged to one of the two P40 Kittyhawks that crashed on the island where I live.  It is island Ugljan in Adriatic sea and planes were attacking German boats in Zadar( town near the island Ugljan) harbor and hidden boats in Zadar archipelago.

I have narrowed my search to this one:

crashed on 16.2.1944.

P-40 „Kittyhawk IV“ FX-688 No. 5 Sqdr SAAF,   Lt. Howitz L.

Lt. Howitz L.  is buried on Belgrade cemetery.

 

I have more parts on the way(compass...). I will post them when I get them.
