The Westland Lysander was an army co-operation and liaison aircraft that was in service from 1938-46 with the RAF. Although it could carry machine guns and bombs the Lysander became famous for its use on special operations. These special operations involved the aircraft being used for dropping off and picking up agents, usually for aiding the French Resistance. The operations would occur and night and they would take off and land in fields, lit by torchlight. The Lysander's short take off and landing capabilities proved essential for this work.
