Check out photo 4 and 6 in this gallery at the Labourgraph.

I don't think I've seen colour piccies of this before. Look at the rough old state of that cookie.

Great shots!  :D
Though makes for a few questions; did RAF bombers as a rule have yellow wing leading edges as in pic 06?
What was the colour coding of bombs; some is yellow some olive with a dark red marking?

If I'm not mistaken the yellow leading edges are due to the application of some form of anti-icing paste/compound.

Early war bombs were yellow and later they became dark green.

The red band shows that they are all High Explosive (HE) bombs.
Red/White meant Semi-Armour Piercing (SAP) and Red/White/Red Armour Piercing (AP)
