    Again all were re-drawn plus some new additions..

    The Westland Lysander entered service in 1938, and was used throughout the war in various roles, most famously dropping and recovering agents into occupied France.

    The Lysander performed the roles of Artillery Spotter, Light Bomber, Messenger, Air Sea Rescue, Clandestine Operations, and Target Tug until withdrawn from service in 1946.

    The Lysander was armed with 7.7mm Vickers or Lewis guns and could be fitted with small bomb racks on the wheel fairings.

    This example is a Lysander Mk II of 3 Squadron Royal Australian Air Force 1940.
