Argentina - Amores Oliver, Eduardo Juan. Fuerza Aérea Argentina – Guía de Aeronaves Militares 1912-2006.
This book by the Argentine Air Force says twenty - eight Bristol Fighter F2b Mark III were acquired between 1920 and 1928. These were numbered 1 through 28. In 1930 and 1931 ten were rebuilt and renumbered 29 through 38. These were withdrawn by 1933. So, 28 air frames and 38 serials. Other sources say forty Brisfits, but I would take this as definitive as it is from the Argentine Air Force history section. For a color profile of an Argentine Brisfit go to http://amilarg.com.ar/perfiles.html .

Honduras - Honduras had only one Bristol Fighter, H-9. It had an eventful career before being destroyed during a rebellion. Hagedorn's Central American and Caribbean Air Forces has information. The best source is 'Los Pilotos Extranjeros en Honduras 1921-1924.' It has small photos of the Honduran Brisfit. http://www.historiadehonduras.hn/Investigaciones/PilotosExtranjerosenHonduras.htm
(Unfortunately, I just checked, and like many Latin American websites, it has disappeared. Send me a email and I can send you a copy that I downloaded. I've learned nothing last forever on the Web so I download a lot.)
