  1. A few miles down the road from Hughenden Manor is Danesfield House at Medmenham, which was one of the main photographic interpretation centres during the war receiving film direct from nearby RAF Benson. There can't be many of these scopes around.
  2. The IWM list this image as taken by an Australian photographer, so your best bet will be the Australian War Memorial: https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/205193432 https://www.awm.gov.au/ You may also like this picture, which is from the British official collection https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/205235910 Edit: Err, maybe not the last as it shows POWs. Could also ask the IWM about the first picture to see if they can help. I suspect at a cost though.
  3. How does this compare? (IWM photo CL 151)
  4. Agree WOT1 but not sure this is a balloon winch. Possibly a fire tender.
  5. It's IWM photo A10123. Other photos of the trailer type include A20204 and A28438 :
  6. Sorry Ian, that's it for now. I'll keep my eyes scanned.
  7. Captions and (better viewing) here: CNA 1015: Officers of No.244 Wing RAF relax at their open air Officers Mess at Pachino, Sicily https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/205209232 CNA 2381 The seven-piece RAF Command Dance Band No. 3, including four brothers, conduct an open-air rehearsal before entertaining No. 244 Wing RAF at Canne, Italy. https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/205212494
  8. Some more inspiration for you. IWM photos CNA 1015 and CNA 2381:
  9. Perhaps, not much help. Nevertheless these may be of interest. IWM photos CNA 2259 and CNA 4662:
  10. I don't have HC of that vintage. For interest, a c.1961 version says: '45 - There are no rights of way in general at roundabouts.'
  11. Some of the code is law - see 'wording of the Highway Code' here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/the-highway-code/introduction Some of it will be stating law found elsewhere. Some of it may be what's know as tertiary legislation - that is, primary or secondary legislation will give officials power to deal with detail such as this in a publication rather than Parliament being troubled with it.
  12. It's published by the Department for Transport - see the top of the web page here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/the-highway-code
  13. A couple more, without rollers? (IWM B 9417 and BU 787):
  14. These have lost their rear bumper as well as other mods - spare wheel and cans (IWM B 8148 and BU 1418):
  15. This one has lost its skate rail (IWM H15962 / H 15963)
