Shooting down a German plane over the Aleutians would be quite a feat!

I would suggest that in the end the British had the Mosquito which was almost identical to the P-38.

Yes I suspect they mean Japanese aircraft, on the whole I don't think it was an aircraft the British didn't want but rather one they didn't need as they had the mosquito.

That said the RAF did use some in a reconnaissance role.
