De Havilland Mosquito T Mk III

The Mosquito variant with the longest service life was the T Mk III. This was a duel control trainer, first developed as part of the original order. It entered service in 1942, and remained in use until the mid 1950s. Five of the first batch of Mosquitoes were built as T Mk IIIs, and 358 were built in total. The first T Mk IIIs were delivered direct to the squadrons building up around the Mosquito, but once the type was better established they were used by the normal training units. The T Mk III was the only Mosquito trainer produced in Britain, although Canada produced 92 trainers in three marks (T Mk 22, T Mk 27 and T Mk 29), and Australia produced 22 T Mk 43s.
