Denis and his crew – November, 1942
[Photograph]
Here is the Lancaster bomber, Zola (and crew), about which we told you the other day. The crew asked Monk, creator of Buck Ryan and Zola strip-cartoon in the “Daily Mirror,” to draw them Zola as a mascot. Zola in the strip has travelled about a bit, but not so much as Zola the bomber. She’s hovered over Wismar, Genoa, Milan, Turin, Hamburg, Bremen, Essen, Stuttgart, and a few other places.
