A follow on from last night's post ....75 Sqn RNZAF in WW2, Photos from R.W Russell, a Lancaster Pilot.
The line up for takeoff
Russell himself posing with a crew member in front of "AA-C" which you may note has become a "Ton-up Lanc" having completed 100 missions.
And, sadly, but its history now, a shot of an earlier raid on Wesel by 75 Sqn (NZ) . You can see the Captain's name at the bottom of the frame.
Wesel is located in Westphalia Germany, there were bridges there that were important to the allied advance ...or something.
