Valiant BK.1 WZ826 at Stratford-upon-Avon, date unknown; Mark Harris/

XD826 served with 7, 90, 138 and 543 Squadrons plus 232 OCU. An unusually large nose section of XD826 survives, primarily because she was used as a Navigation and Bomb-aiming System procedures trainer (at Feltwell, as 7872M) until 1965. She is now with the Cockpit Collection at Rayleigh - updates on her condition, and updated photos, would be appreciated if anybody can assist...?
