Artist's Description

I was probably nearer 20,(1956) when this was taken. I was off on a “jolly” in a Lincoln bomber doing radar recce over Germany. I was hoping for the bomb aimer’s seat in the nose. I’m a J/T (junior tech.) here but my corporal stripes had just come through. (Acting Cpl, PAID). The Waafs (WRAF) used to enjoy pulling your parachute harness tight when fitting you out. All for your safety of course!!!
Was there not a song about US soldiers during the Vietnam War, called “19”
That’s a PR Canberra bomber in the background.
The half round building is a Nissen Hut made from corrugated iron sheets.
