Polish No. 302 Squadron was one of the units that participated in the invasion of Normandy in June, 1944, as can be deduced from the D-Day stripes painted on the lower sides of fuselage and wings. The pointed rudder was freshly painted and so accordingly, the colours appeared darker than the rest of the aircraft. Nose art was not particularly common within the RAF, so the girl sitting on the bomb is a nice exception. Note the Polish stencil right of the cockpit door ‘Wycierac obuwie’ (‘wipe your shoes’).
