First flight of the Westland Lysander liaison aircraft 15/6 1936.

other than its ability to take off in an absurdly short distance, a "boring" war plane, no guns for a start, but I was strangely obsessed with the Airfix kit of it.

In this pre-war shot of Lysanders of 16 Sqdn RAF,we see use of Type B roundel on fuselage without use of fin flash.Can't be certain,but top wing seem to have rare variant of Type B called the Type B-1,which included thick outer band of yellow-rare indeed,as used only on “some” aircraft between March-December 1939.Whole point of Type B to get rid of all contrasting colour,so adding yellow simply defeated purpose.
