Corgi AA36805 RAF Westland Lysander Mk. II Reconnaissance Aircraft - No. 13 Squadron, 1939 (1:72 Scale) "Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few."

This particular 1:72 scale replica of a Lysander was attached to No. 13 Squadron in 1939. Sold Out!

Historical Account: By the autumn of 1939, No. 13 Squadron was equipped with Lysanders and operated in France until May 1940, when the group changed role and theater. The following year was spent on anti-submarine and anti-invasion patrols before Blenheims arrived, and the squadron returned to army cooperation duties.
