The "Wimpey" featured a geodetic form of construction and was the RAF's most formidable bomber when war was declared. It participated in reconnaissance operations on the first day of the war and was involved in bombing attacks on German warships at Wilhelmshaven on the second. Five and one half years later, its last operation was a raid to Northern Italy in April 1945. Wellingtons served in several other roles including that of being the primary aircraft at Bomber Command Operational Training Units, a night-fighter, convoy protection, and the detection and exploding of magnetic mines.
