 The Short Stirling was the RAFs first four-engined bomber to enter service and it served throughout WWII in many roles including bomber, minelayer, troop carrier and glider-tug. The lack of power produced by its engines severely limited the loads carried by Stirlings. On long-range trips such as Italy, even with a greatly reduced bomb load the aircraft could barely clear the Alps. Despite very large losses due to its operational limitations, those that flew this big, agile aircraft, came to respect and look upon it with it with affection.

 Short Stirling N6086 <i>MacRobert's Reply</i> of 15 Sqn is shown during the bombing raid on the French Harbour of Brest on 18th December 1941.  British bombers had been dispatched to bomb the German battleships <i>Gneisenau</i> and <i>Scharnhorst</i> that were docked there, an action that earned N6086's skipper Fl Off Peter Boggis a DFC.  Stirling W7428 is also shown with her port wing ablaze, one of two Stirlings lost on this operation.  The subject of the RAF's attention can be seen amid the smoke - <i>Gneisenau</i> in drydock and <i>Sharnhorst</i> alongside.

 Short Stirling III EH990 is depicted heading out over the North Sea on the evening of 7th October 1943, on a mine-laying sortie off the Frisian Islands. LS-K was piloted, on this occasion, by Fl/Sg Thomas Robertson Ewen, RAFVR on his first - and sadly only - mission as pilot, his aircraft falling victim to a marauding enemy night fighter.
