Stamped to reverse ‘Passed for Publication 2 July 1942 Press and Censorship Bureau’, ‘Public Relations Branch MAP’.

A fine photograph; two erks are adjusting the starboard undercarriage of a Lancaster bomber whilst being supervised – the supervisor apparently with his hands in his pockets in very unmilitary fashion! The sun is high in the sky, casting a rather fine shadow under the bomber.
