A series of photographs taken on 21 July 1943 at RAF Beaulieu.

They show crewmen (and a dog) of No.311 Czechoslovakian Squadron on and around a Consolidated Liberator. It is possible that this is one crew but this is un-confirmed. In one photo (IWM CH 18520) the aircrafts serial number is visible as LV343 but again it is unclear if all the photographs were taken around the same aircraft though this is likely.
