Before The Long Patrol by G.R. Mainwaring, showing what appears to be an RAAF Consolidated PBY Catalina being prepared for a patrol mission somewhere in the South Pacific. The Catalina was an American flying boat and later amphibious aircraft of the 1930s and 1940s produced by Consolidated Aircraft. It was one of the most widely used seaplanes of World War II, serving with every branch of the United States Armed Forces and in the air forces and navies of many other nations.
