    Armourers arming a Spitfire IX with a 250lb under each wing and a 500lb bomb under the centerline. The aircraft is being prepared for a sortie from an airfield in Normandy in support of ground troops. This was a Polsih unit, named Krakowski. They used these fighters from November 1943 in UK and from August 1944 to March 1945 in France.
