Hi, Hoping someone can shed some light on these photo's. I believe them to be of the same squadron, one being only part of the squadron while the other seems to be the full squadron.....I could be wrong as I don't know much about this subject. I came across these in a book I had and have been trying to do some research on them when I found this site. Maybe someone can help out there, if not a couple of photo's for the site.

Many Thanks Stu

Quick guess I'd say 160 or 120 Squadron

I just noticed the Leigh light under the wing, add to that the cold appearance, and the white finish it's almost certainly a Coastal Command Liberator, there's a similar photo on 86 Squadron photos.

Thanks Gary for the info. Along with these photo's there are also some aerial shots of sub's in dock, one sub at sea and one photo which appears it could have been taken on D-Day with several ships ?? or just a large convoy.

Hi Stu,

I've just registered, and the lower photo looks a lot like one in my possession, which is 120 Sqn. My Dad was the Sqn Adj 1943-44. I am hoping to post a large number of 120 Sqn photos in the near future.

Stu,

Just zoomed in on the photo, and Dad is in the front row! Definitely 120 Sqn...
