    Image possibly taken in Akaroa Harbour 1952 or thereafter. Aircraft is a P51 Mustang. They were flown by the New Zealand based Territorial Airforce (TAF) Wigram..The ML and whalers crew could have been Rockies.

    2 Squadron RNZAF TERRITORIAL SQUADRON[tell by black and yellow pattern by roundel] based just outside Mosgiel, RNZAF TAIREI where little Mole lived till 1959
    Possibly taken OTAGO and ML is likely to be HMNZS TOROA.
