    Hi Brian:

    This suggests Dale was a navigator: http://www.canadaveteranshallofvalour.com/DaleRG.htm

    Is it just possible that (Navigator) Dale was the a/c Commander? A topic that has been touched upon in a number of recent threads on the forum!

    Revisiting the Mosquito IX photos on Flickr, this one appears to show an oblique camera window on the starboard side. Perhaps there was one on the port side too...?

    Looked at the oncamouflagedwings site referred to on the Flickr page and there are two poor quality photos of the Mosquito's port side. The window in the Flickr starboard view does not appear to be there but there does appear to be a round camera port low on the fuselage in one of the B&W shots, confirmed in the following:
