    Thanks for the response

    I was sent a photograph of a 35 Squadron airmen with an aircraft marked XM in the background, so I was trying to see if I could work out the location and/or date.

    I will follow up the information provided and try and link it to the aircraft type in the photo (which I haven't worked out yet)

    No guarantees that I will obtain a result, but though I would give it a go

    Regards

    Pete
