I don't think so , it looks like a shipboard setting.

Hi Brady! Hi all!

I agree with AW1Steve. I think it is FAA F4U Corsairs on the deck british carrier Illustrious class.

More info of FAA and BPF:
British Pacific Fleet
BPF orders of battle 1945
RN FAA in Australia during WW2
FAA Archive

More of Illustrious class:
Illustrious class
the first armoured aircraft carrier
HMS Illustrious (CV-7)

HMS Formidable - site included cool photo albums

Some info of Corsairs:
Chance-Vought F4U Corsair
F4U Corsair
F4U Corsair References - many links
Vought F4U
Chance Vought F4U Corsair

Enjoy!

FAA Corsair pilots in the European Theatre of Operations

(3 coloured fin stripes and a jacket far too warm for the PTO)

Maybe taken after a Tirpitz strike.

Yes, probably photo taken in the ETO.

I'm here, have no fear

Capt. James Bigglesworth, or Biggles to his friends, was originally a member of the RFC before the creation of the RAF. Between the wars he was also a detective. My course in training had to do a presentation on something related to the RAF, we wanted to choose Biggles but were told no


As for the quiz, I'm going to go for a Corsair MkII or MkIV, probably a II.
EDIT 2: I'm also going to say not HMS Illustrious, maybe HMS Victorious & 1836 Sqn? I can't be arsed to post a dozen links about this stuff either

He was present in the Far East, operating out of Dum Dum. Along with his comrades he was sent to find and disable the Japanese secret weapon that was bringing down RAF aircraft in India. The mystery had the top brass worried, was it a Death Ray? Or something else? Biggles had to find out, and quickly!

As a rule I generaly avoid giving hints:

1) At least one of them is an Ace (or better)

2) And a Maple Leaf was something he saw on ocashion.
