    ".... I wonder what sort of meals they cooked onboard, apart from tea of course!"

    It was wartime - so nothing fancy - tinned beef, tinned kippers, biscuits etc., I'm guessing :) ... but the luxury was HOT food and the ability to sit at a table and eat it ...:)

    On the other hand ... in 1972 I went on a 12+ hour NORPAT mission in a Canadair Argus out of Greenwood Nova Scotia - it too had a galley and served up steaks (which we all chipped in to buy, IIRC).

    Very Impressive aircraft I watched it land here in Lakeland were its based at Kermit Weeks 'Fantasy of Flight' exhibit. Think its planned to undergoe a complete restore. There appeared to be a good dose of corrosion in and out the last time I walked through it. Thanks for the cool link!
