This is probably a Mosquito flying over Malta in 1943.
Who flew YP-D?
Pilots were not assigned to a particular plane. But we know from this logbook page that Theo Griffiths and Ric Maude were flying YP-D on November 3rd, 1943 on their first mission from Pomigliano to straffe in the region of Rome and Florence.
Armorers prepare a de Havilland Mosquito FB Mark VI of No. 23 Squadron RAF for night operations at Pomigliano d’Arco airfield, Naples. A detachment of No 23 Squadron was deployed at Pomigliano from 1 November until 7 December 1943 and so the date was taken between this two dates. (source)
No. 23 Squadron had a detachment flying Mosquitos from Pomigliano.
This is why a pilot’s logbook is so precious.
Pictures are also precious of course.
10 November 1943 in Naples
About pictures, this one on the Internet.
Malta, Luqa Airfield, June 1943: the Commander of No 23 Squadron, Royal Air Force, Wing Commander John B Selby, DSO, DFC, already on flight dress, and his observer looking at their de Havilland Mosquito II aircraft “P-Peter” while other members of the Squadron watch from atop the blast wall at the Dispersal Point. The four 20mm cannon (sic) are corked to prevent dirt damaging them.
