Catalina being pulled up slipway, Mobasa

Here we see a Consolidated Catalina being pulled up the slipway at RAF Kipevu, Mobasa, by hand, in May 1946. It looks as if every spare hand was pressed into service for this task!

Many thanks to Michael Hopkins for sending us these pictures, which came from his father's collection, and came towards the end of his RAF service, which lasted from August 1941 to November 1946.
