    Default Equipment Photographs

    Would anyone happen to have a photograph which shows (a) Fishpond Unit installed on a Lancaster (b) Visual Monica Unit installed on a Halifax and Lancaster

    Regards

    Pete

    Hi Pete,
    I have a photo of my Dad's crew at Tholthorpe in the spring of 1944 which shows Monica on their Halifax. I will forward to you via email.
    Cheers, Clint

    Received with thanks.

    I still need to find a photo showing the equipment fitted to the Lancaster (if it was still in use by then) and to find photographs of the Visual Monica Unit in the WOP station on both the Halifax and the Lancaster

    Regards

    Pete
