Somewhere on North Africa, late 1941/early 1942, maybe. RAAF 3 Sqn Sergeant Cecil “Tiny” Cameron and his truly beloved mascot “Buzz”. “Buzz” should have earned flying pay: he often flew as a very unofficial Tiny’s co-pilot.
The Allies were not only behind in aircraft technology on the North African theatre. Tiny (he was 6ft 4in/193cm!!) wears a very British headgear: the iconic B helmet, the not very efficient Mk IIIA googles and the definitely crude D oxygen mask.
