Original illustration of Royal Air Force (RAF) Bradwell Bay, a former airfield near Bradwell in Essex. Built during the Second World War, Bradwell Bay operated as an airfield through to 1946, playing host to a range of Royal Air Force squadrons throughout its lifetime. Uniquely for a fighter airfield, it used the 'Fog Investigation and Dispersal Operation' system to aid pilots landing in foggy conditions.

The star of this illustration is HK204, a De Havilland Mosquito Mk XII of No. 488 Squadron Royal New Zealand Air Force, with the estimated Squadron Code of ME-W. Tragically, HK204 crashed near Tolleshunt Knights, with both pilot Edward 'Cecil' Ball and copilot William Kemp losing their lives.

We have also illustrated HK365, another Mosquito of No. 488 Squadron, which was also based at Bradwell Bay.
