Sunderland Mk.I
Unit: Coastal Command
Serial: SE-F (L5802)

On 16 January 1941, a detachment of three Sunderlands from No. 210 Squadron at Pembroke Dock became No.95 Squadron which flew its first boat out to Gibraltar early in February. After flying patrols, the Squadron began to arrive at its base at Freetown, Sierra Leone, on 17 March to begin anti-submarine patrols over the South Atlantic. This one is in a camouflage scheme not normally applied to Coastal Command aircraft, though, so it's a bit unusual.
