Near a British farmhouse, whose adjoining meadows have been converted into an airfield, a big Liberator fuels on its "hard standing," an island in a sea of mud. The smoking lamp is out while Pateu (Patrol Service Unit) crews on the wings of the big white and grey plane lead fuel lines from a tank truck.
