Stores reference 10U/13185.  'FLY. 4. Engine Fire In The Air'.  Large 'Restricted' R.A.F. poster, approximately 95.0 x 63.5cm.  Printed on thick paper in black, white and blue ink.  Shows a Beaufighter in the air with inset images/cutaway drawings of the engines.   Interestingly and unusually there are furthur illustrations on the rear showing two of the crew in exactly the same position/pose as the main image.  Flames have also been illustrated and if held to the light you can see that they emanate from the engines.  These illustrations could possibly be original (non printed) and there are various signatures in pencil.  The poster is a bit grubby, notably on the right side of the main image and there a few small edge tears and relatively minor creasing.  No holes or paper loss.  An impressive display piece.  Stock code P16724.
