Over the years we have had many RAF Veterans make Erskine their home. We have been enthralled with their stories of bravery and sacrifice. This is a glimpse into life in the Royal Air Force in WW2 courtesy of Royal Air Force official photographer Pilot Officer N.S. Clark Via WW2 Colourised Photos.
The picture shows Flying Officer R. W. Stewart, a wireless operator on board an Avro Lancaster B Mark I of No. 57 Squadron RAF based at Scampton, Lincolnshire, speaking to the pilot from his position in front of the Marconi TR 1154/55 transmitter/receiver set. c.1942-43.
