With the pod to the left of the picture, this was the pile of bits making up WR539. Delivered in February 1956 and struck off charge in July 1962 when it went on display at RAF Kai Tak in Hong Kong. Sea freighted back to the UK and after going through various owners the pod can now be found at the de Havilland Aircraft Heritage Centre, London Colney.
