10 year after WW2 I was a 18 year old SAC (Senior Aircraft-man) servicing the RAF’s Lincoln bombers (a mk 4 Lancaster?).
The only cold weather clothing we had was left over WW1 & 2 leather jerkins. The writing on the front says RADAR, and I had Donald Duck with a tail end like the radome you can see underneath, painted on the back.The green overalls were called Denims.
I’m the skinny one 2nd from the left.
