Aircrew and a Lancaster


First, a group of 12 men in uniform and flying suits standing under the starboard wing of a Lancaster with David is standing sixth right. Five of the men are wearing side caps and five are wearing flying suits and parachute harnesses. Parachute bags and other items are by their feet. The Lancaster's wheels are held in place by chocks. Beyond the aircraft is snow covered open ground with bare trees and hedgerow in the distance.
Second, a studio portrait of 11 uniformed men, ten wearing side caps and one in an officer's hat. Five of the men are seated with the officer sat in the centre and six form a standing row behind with David standing far left. Behind the group is a painted backdrop and curtains hang to both sides.
