Another morning at the office

It was a varied morning for the boys who war game at College.

Four of them fought across the skies above Germany in 1943, P51s trying to clear the skies of the ever present Fw190s in preparation for the arrival of the bomber waves.

It was another Saturday morning at the office, but that's how we roll at College.
