Scanned from a 80x55mm print. No date given, but thought to be 1944. Writen on the back of the print is 'S/Ldr Frazer and crew went missing in this aircraft'. Info from the CWGC shows that Squadron Leader Ronald George Renwick Frazer (age 30) of 58 Sqn. went missing on February 24th, 1945, No known grave. Photo passed to me by a friend whose uncle flew with Coastal Command at the time.

The Martin Mars prototype in take-off at an unknown location, possibly the Pacific off San Francisco. This photo was taken circa 1944, about two years after it had been converted from patrol bomber to transport aircraft, by the removal of its gun turrets, bomb bays, armored plating and other combat provisions. Instead, this transport version received additional cargo hatches and cargo loading equipment, as well as reinforced decking. Photo from: US Navy / National Naval Aviation Museum
