Local inhabitants take an interest as ground crew of No. 114 Squadron RAF inspect one of the first Douglas Bostons to be received by the Squadron at Canrobert, Algeria. This particular aircraft is a Douglas A-20B, which retains its USAAF serial number, 41-3243, and olive drab finish. The RAF flash has been added to the tail, and the individual aircraft letter 'J' to the nose, while the RAF roundel has been painted over the American fuselage markings.
