Weekend extra.
Leading Aircraftman G.A. McKeown, left, and Leading Aircraftman R.H. Lavery, members of the RCAF’s 427 “Lion” Squadron, carry out maintenance on Handley Paige HP 63 Halifax B. Mk. V bomber “London’s Revenge”. The ferocious winged lion on the aircraft’s nose carries a bomb while the “Lana” is in honour of the blonde movie star of the same name. The squadron was adopted by MGM Studios in Hollywood because of the shared lion logo and MGM allowed the squadron to display the names of movie stars such as Lana Turner on its aircraft. 427 Squadron had completed 20 bombing trips at the time this photograph was taken.
