The photograph, depicting a Lancaster bomber with its maintenance crew, is believed to be part of the 617 and 627 ‘Dambusters’ squadron.

The pictured was handed in to Northumbria Police officers at East Boldon Metro station last month by a member of the public, after being found rolled up and soaking wet.
