de Havilland Mosquito Bomber Command Christmas Card by Philip E. West GAvA


Ground crews busy themselves readying their de Havilland Mosquito as the aircrew head out towards the aeroplane for yet another mission to a high value target over occupied Europe during WWII. Their dangerous job as Pathfinders is to accurately mark and bomb the target for the main heavy bomber force. It required great skill in navigation, airmanship and courage. The Mosquito proved to be a real thoroughbred and ideal for many varied combat sorties, so earning the nickname of 'The Wooden Wonder'.
