(Rus)  Lancasters over the French countryside of evening shadows while en route to the Schneider heavy engineering factory at Le Creusot, 17 October 1942. The nearest aircraft in the photograph is R5497/OF:Z of No 97 Squadron, with Fg Off J.R. Brunt and crew. Their luck ran out on the night of 17/18 December 1942 when, in the same Lancaster, they were one of nine crews who failed to return that night. (IWM C3183)
