Related Notes & Links
I have entitled this image 'Moonstrike' after the BBC TV series in the 60's that depicted the cloak and dagger operations of of the likes of 161 squadron, although the series was fictitious.

DIH Trivia
Only three episodes of this series (out of 27) remain in existence and one briefly appeared on the BBC Archive Web Site.

Moving from fiction to fact: In 2003 Arkell's Brewery produced a celebration ale Moonlight to celebrate the 80th birthday of Arkell's Chairman, Peter Arkell OBE. Specially called 'Moonlight' in commemoration of Peter's missions flying low-level sorties over France in 1943, picking up agents in central occupied France during the full moon period.

Douglas Holland makes a special request:
If anyone has the intro of the Moonstrike theme (the part with the Morse Chatter) in digital form, could they please contact me via Caz, using the email link. Thank you in advance.
