    Default Wellington B Mk.X series LPxxx photo hunt

    Hi all,

    I would like to ask if there is existing any photo of Wellington B Mk.X of series LPxxx (the best would be LP4xx)?
    I have went through several books (including RAF serials from Air Britain) and I have searched with help of Mr. Google but no luck so far - except partial picture of LP202 on IWM website.

    TIA
