    Default Stirling IV rear fuselage interior photos - where are they from?

    Hello again everyone

    I saw these photos posted on the TapaTalk Forum:

    http://gallery.myff.org/gallery/782545/StirlingIV+1.jpg

    http://gallery.myff.org/gallery/782551/StirlingIV+2.jpg

    Can anyone tell me where they're originally from? It's not from the Stirling AP1660A/B/C/D series, as far as I can tell. I'm assuming the arrows have captions, so some other sort of manual?

    Regards

    Simon

    Hi Simon,
    I'm an infrequent visitor to the site and have just stumbled on this post.
    Photo #2 appears to show a 'chute hatch of the type used to drop agents/supply canisters. The Special Duties Squadrons such as those out of Tangmere or Tempsford began to operate Stirlings in May 1944. They could carry up to 20 containers.
    Just a thought.
    Pete
