Description

Lincolnshire, England. 1943-08-18. Half the crew of this aircraft of No. 460 (Lancaster) Squadron RAAF of Bomber Command at RAF Station Binbrook are Scots, hence the emblem showing a kangaroo wearing flying boots and lustily playing the bagpipes. The bombs represent raids over enemy territory, the ice cream cones depicting Italian targets. 411808 Flight Lieutenant A. S. MacWilliam DFC of Sydney, NSW, is leaning out of the cockpit.
