...::: THE 59 SQUADRON CREWS :::...

Unlike the 'portrait' that was sent back to a sweetheart, a loving mother or a family, the 'crew' photo holds a special place for those pictured because it highlights the comradery between them. As you look through the images, you can see a range of emotions on people's faces. Sometimes they've got a look on their face that they'd rather be 'somewhere else', especially if they've just returned from a sortie, they've still got their flight gear on, it's windy and miserably cold.. but hang on fellas.. it's time for a 'snapshot'! Other times, the sun is out, the smiles are glowing and you wouldn't even think there was a war going on... They really are 'a moment in time' captured...
