    Thanks Pavel

    Seems to me to be overall yellow, rather than camouflaged, with the yellow appearing dark due to the type of film used.

    Could it possibly be R.C.A.F. Anson N9837, 31 A.N.S./5 S.F.T.S.? S.o.C. 16.8.46.

    Regards

    Simon

    Thank you all, is it possible to find the names of those aboard at the time ? Would there be an ORB or similar ?

    The ORB is online but unfortunately I have found nothing there on the date.
