Yes, it's a Whitley Bomber. They were made in versions with in-line and radial engines.

My grandad, HW Kendall, left Grantham for Coventry in 1905 to work at the Ordnance Works. He was a skilled toolmaker, seen in this photo in the courtyard of St Mary's Hall during WW1 (front row, second from left). He may have been the Secretary of the Group, as he was later involved with early Trade Unions. Edited by member, 17th Jul 2018 10:53 am

Small Tool Dept, Ordnance Works, is almost certainly where HW Kendall, my grandfather, worked as a skilled toolmaker. An apprentice at Hornsby's in Grantham before moving to Coventry in 1905. He ended his working life at the Alvis until his death in 1948. Edited by member, 17th Jul 2018 4:05 pm
