Two of the RAF's best known and most successful Mosquito pilots.

Ivor Broom completed over 100 bombing missions including 22 attacks on Berlin, his daring raids including a low-level (50 feet) mining attack on the Dortmund-Ems canal and tossing a 4000lb bomb into the mouth of a rail tunnel in the Ardennes during the German offensive.
