Hello,

https://218squadron.wordpress.com/av...er-mk-b-me454/

ME545 served as XH-L "Lovely Lou" on 218 Sqn.

You'll find a nice shot of Lancaster ME545 in the following publication:

Avro Lancaster The Definite Record - 2nd Edition.
Holmes,Harry
Shrewsbury:Airlife Publishing,2001.
p.212.

The photo caption reads:

Lancaster ME545/V7-E of the Radio Warfare Establishment at Watton in 1946, with its mid-upper turret faired over. The unit became the Central Signals Establishment in 1947, but the code letters were retained. The aircraft's service was as "Lovely Lou", XH-L, of 218 Sqn.

Col.
