Clive Robertson Caldwell sitting in his Tomahawk.
Clive Robertson Caldwell sitting in his Tomahawk. He was shot at the day before, 29 August 1941. On the reverse of this photo he wrote: “The canopy is in the same position as it was during the “do”. On the far side just behind my head you can see where a few bullets came through and scored a near miss. Another similar burst of about twice the number came through the top, but … was a failure owing to sun glare. They took the ear piece off my helmet. A number of shrapnel holes from the 20mm shells that hit the wings can be seen in the side of the cockpit, and a bullet hole in this side... This was the occasion when I collected a couple or so slugs myself and was taken next day if I remember right. It may be of interest to you”
