The RAF collection of photographs wrongly described this image as 609 Squadron.
In September 1980 RAF Biggin Hill gathered together a collection of photographs from museums, commercial and private individuals to mount an exhibition to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain. The collection was passed on to Bob Ogley when the RAF withdrew from Biggin Hill.
This photograph is part of the Bob Ogley Photograph Collection.
