    Pavel,

    You will find a photo of Wellington IC T2468 in the following publication (and elsewhere no doubt):

    Wellington Squadrons In Focus
    Freer,Paul & Simon Parry.
    Walton-on-Thames:Red Kite,2009
    p.17

    The photo depicts T2468 in No.9 Sqn guise; WS-Y, with the following caption:

    Below: Wellington MkIc T2468 WS-Y - Yorker had a remarkably long career, completing 13 operations with IX Squadron before going on to serve with 75, 49 and 311 Squadrons. Operations complete, T2468 then served with a number of Operational Training Units until being SOC in April 1944.

    So plenty of photo opportunities!

    Col.

    Thank you Colin, you are right, my fault while browsing my books. I had Wellington Squadrons In Focus in my hands but I have missed it somehow.

    So 1 of 11 found, I hope other members would be able to suggest others.
