Another photo suggested by email. Sharkmouths on medium bombers are uncommon, particularly when as striking as that on this Blenheim Mk IV, Z9585, when used by 89 Squadron, a Beaufighter-equipped nightfighter unit, as a squadron `hack’ in the Mediterranean. Here it is some time between June and late October 1942. Original link
