I am in the process of scanning my fathers old photo's and came across this one of "The recovery of an aircraft shot down by natives". I believe that it was probably taken near Nagar or Peshawar, India around 1935

I have come across this photo in with a lot of my fathers pictures. The writing on the reverse says 'This is the Viceroy's own plane and the snap was taken when he visited us a few weeks ago'. I am fairly sure that it was taken in the mid 1930's somewhere in the North West Frontier Province of India.

The picture shows my dad from a later period, probably late 40's
