Armstrong Vickers Wellington Mk. IV DV800

This is a detail of the only marks we could find on any component in the wreckage pile featured above. There are two inspection stamps, and two numbers to be seen if you look carefully. We have had these confirmed as Wellington IV part numbers here.

Alan Clark of PDAAR challenges the views of this informant, and says all Wellingtons have such numbers. We don't know, and frankly can't be bothered to enter the debate. We may be anoraks, but you have to draw the line somewhere.
