Avro Lancaster Bomber Command Christmas Card by Philip E. West GAvA


This peaceful scene at East Kirkby in the winter of 1944 gives a very real feel for the vitally important work undertaken by ground crew in all weathers. At this stage of the war, to help identification at a distance, the tail fins of 57 Squadron Lancasters wore a black vertical bar on a red background. The squadron flew on 348 raids with 108 Lancasters lost in action and another 31 in accidents.
