Two Wrens checking the equipment in a Vought-Sikorsky Chesapeake on its arrival at Royal Naval Air Station Stretton, Lancashire. WRNS are now doing maintenance work at the aerodromes where Fleet Air Arm planes are overhauled. They check over planes when they arrive or leave to ensure that each one has its correct equipment, do gunnery maintenance and photographic work. The Chesapeake was a British version of the Vought-Sikorsky Vindicator.
