Reg is sitting under the aircraft before the bombs have been loaded. From information kindly supplied by the donor. 'Harrison sitting on the bomb trolley, on a bomb canister. This was a mixed load of bombs consisting of 4000lb Cookie, several 500lb bombs and the remainder were incendiary canisters. Harrison may have been contemplating what the target would be for tonights operation. The mixed bomb load indicates that one of many heavy industrialised cities in the Rhur might be in for another visit from Bomber Command.'.
