Philip E. West - Pathfinder Force - de Havilland Mosquito
de Havilland Mosquito Bomber Command Christmas Card by Philip E. West GAvA
Passing low over Norwich
Cathedral on this wintry evening, Pathfinder Mosquitos begin to transit east
from their bases on yet another dangerous night-time mission over enemy
territory. They will take the lead on this bombing mission and their role is to
identify and mark pre-planned targets with flares, enabling the main force of
Lancaster and Halifax aircraft to drop their bombs as accurately as possible.
