Interesting to see the 'related objects' at the bottom of the page.

The indexing of IWM photos is an ongoing task, as it is with every museum or archive; the option being to stop collecting !

A Journal photo feature on captured German aircraft would be a good way to go with this, along the lines of the one Stuart Leslie compiled on G56 some years back.

See my post above, Three (Two in UK marks) in Windsock Datafile no 151 (I'm not going to incurr Ray Rimmel's wrath by scanning and posting them online!)
