Advance Australia fair!

Happy Aussie day to Our Friends Down Under. To mark the day, here are three more pictures from the Australian War Memorial Collection that have rarely, if ever, been seen in print: Jack Leggo leading a VE Parade, Mick Martin’s Dams raid aircraft P-Popsie, and Bob Kellow in uniform.

    I would suggest that this is a later P Popsy than his dams raid aircraft – it doesn’t appear to have the cutaway bomb bay, and the presence of the Mosquito with long range tanks suggests that this was in the days when Mosquitos were target-marking for 617’s precision attacks. I believe that Martin always coded his aircraft “P”.
