The forty ninth FG used to be despatched to Australia in early 1942 to assist stem the tide of eastern conquest in Java. Too overdue to avoid wasting the island, the crowd went into motion within the defence of Darwin, Australia, the place the Forty-Niners’ handful of P-40E Warhawks have been thrown into wrestle along survivors from the defeated forces that had fled from the Philippines and Java. This publication assesses the phenomenal functionality of the forty ninth FG, pitted opposed to stronger eastern forces. through VJ-Day the gang had scored 668 aerial victories and gained 3 individual Unit Citations and ten crusade stars for its remarkable efforts.

The structures introduced here are derived from the pseudofields defined by Tits in [39] and form the near-domains of Karzel, and hence the name KT-field. Definition: A KT-field is a quadruple (F, +,·,a), which satisfies the following axioms: KT 1: (F, +, ·) is a near-domain KT2: a is an involutory automorphism of the multiplicative group (F*, ·) which satisfies the jUnctional equation a(1 + a(x)) = 1- a(l + x), for all x E F\{0, -1}. The characteristic of (F, +, ·, a) is defined to be the characteristic of (F, +, ·).

10. Structure. , + . 1) The groups G0 form a class of maximal conjugate 'subgroups of G and each G0 operates sharply 2-transitively on M\ {a}. Further, define K = H 3 ={a E G: ord 0! = 3}, and let J and 11 = H2 denote the set of involutions and the set of involutions which have fixed points respectively. Then from § 2, K and ft are conjugate classes in G and G is of type (m, n), mE{0,1,2}, nE {0, 1} if and only if the elements of K have m, and the elements of ft have n + 1 fixed points. Define 10 = J n G0 = ft n G0 , for a EM.
