The D. D. McNeill Crew of 415
Squadron staning in front of Halifax III MZ-946 coded 6U-O.
This is one of the rare photos of a Halifax III with a mid-under
gun. Most 415 Squadron Halifax IIIs had the mid-under gun,
but it was usually censored out of the photos. On each op a spare
gunner would be chosen from the pool to operate the mid-under gun.
