In 1943 the late Peter Isaacson AM DFC AFC DFM and his crew flew a brand new Lancaster from England to Australia travelling from East to West. Once in Australia they embarked on a War Bonds fundraising tour of Australia and New Zealand. This was about a year before the famous G-Gorge now in the Australian War Memorial was flown here.
Here’s the page from Peter’s logbook with that flight underlined in red.

Image Control made an ANZAC Day documentary for Channel 7 in 2002 and part of this was Peter’s story of flying ‘Queenie VI’ under the bridge in October 1943.
