Painting of RAF Beaufighter aircraft

"Beaufighter Patrol"

Here we have an RAF Beaufighter of 236 Squadron, setting off in the early morning sunshine on a Channel raiding sortie. Beaufighters were used extensively on anti-shipping duties in almost all the allied theatres during the war. They were well-liked by the crews for their rugged construction and heavy armament - qualities which also inspired a good deal of respect from the enemy.
