Object description

A Whitley crew preparing for a night sortie in November 1941. The ground crew wait patiently as last-minute adjustments are made to the pilot's flying clothing at dispersal. Note the parachutes and map bags on the ground, and the thermos flask- an essential item of personal kit for a seven-hour flight a draughty Whitley.
