Product Description

Corgi  Lysander Mk III  357 Sqn RAF, Burma 1945  1/72 scale diecast metal and plastic parts. Limited edition of 1,000 pieces world wide.  AA36807

Famed for its very short take-off and landing (STOL) capabilities, the Westland Lysander proved itself to be a capable and dependable machine across all allied fronts during the Second World War. 

One of its lesser known theatres of operation however, was in the so called ‘forgotten war’ –the conflict in Burma.  During the opening stages of the war in Burma, the Lysander had been used for bombing duties.  However, by 1945 the aircraft was being used to drop covert forces behind enemy lines.  The Lysander was ideally suited to this very risky job, blessed with such good STOL capabilities. 

While 357 Squadron only operated the Lysander for a brief period of time, from March to November 1945 the squadron flew countless operations and dropped many agents, sometimes deep behind enemy lines.  It was in this theatre that the Lysander last saw operational service with the RAF, thus ending its distinguished frontline career.
