Armourers hurry a trolley load of 500-lb GP bombs to an awaiting Vickers Wellington Mark X of No. 205 Group RAF, which is being refuelled in preparation for a night raid on targets in the Salerno area, on the day before the Allied landings there, (Operation AVALANCHE). The aircraft's front turret has been shrouded to shield it from the North African heat.
