British Firefly Carrier Fighter

The aircraft carrier H.M.S. Indefatigable will be in Admiral Nimitz's armada of American and British ships getting the Japanese surrender at Tokyo.


Picture shows: The flight deck party pushing a Firefly fighter along the deck. Flying in one of the last strikes against Japan, it was hit by four shells, but the uninjured pilot and observer brought it back 200 miles for a successful deck landing.
