Flying Fortress during Royal Visit to RAF Nutts Corner

This picture shows King George VI inspected a Flying Fortress Mk II of No.220 Squadron during a Royal Visit to Nutts Corner, Northern Ireland in July 1942.

Many thanks to Peter Claydon for sending us these pictures, which belonged to his uncle, C.W.J. Claydon, who spent much of the war serving as a medical officer with No.120 Squadron at Ballykelly, Northern Ireland.
