76 Squadron Group Photo

I am actually unsure of the exact names of the men in this image but I have managed to remove a lot of the aging and the creases out of the original print in order to restore the image back to how it would’ve look originally (or as close as I personally can get it). I’ve estimated this image to be taken around sometime around June to possibly August 1942 as this is when the Squadron was based at Milne Bay, Papua New Guinea. The aircraft the men are posing in front one is a Kittyhawk fighter which at the time was one of the RAAF’s leading fighter aircraft.
