Lieutenant M V Judas from Elgin, Illinois reads a magazine and shares a joke with American Red Cross hostess, Mrs Pam Hanna, whilst relaxing in the sunshine in the grounds of Stanbridge Earls. Behind them, an Asian pagoda structure can be seen. According to the original caption, Lieutenant Judas is a Fortress pilot (B17 Flying Fortress) and had two of his four engines shot out of action during a raid on Bremen, but was able to bring his aircraft safely back home. Apparently, "the experience has not affected his infectious good humour".
