Liberator GR. Mk I, Aircraft were assigned to
Number 120 Squadron, RAF Coastal Command.
First six aircraft flew to Britain in March
1941 and joined RAF Coastal Command.
Aircraft in file photo, could be one of the first six, or one of the twenty later sent to the British.
Fifteen of the bombers were modified to hunt German U-boats. Early model Liberators, were
retired and replaced with improved B-24s as the war continued.


It was the British that named the B-24 the
"Liberator" later the USAAF adoped the name.
Winston Churchill's personal transport was a
Liberator Mk I, he named "Commando".
