© NMeM / Daily Herald Archive / Science & Society Picture Library


A photograph of a Seafire fighter plane taking off from the deck of the aircraft carrier HMS Indomitable, taken by Saidman for the Daily Herald newspaper on 19 March, 1943. This photograph has been marked in red by the censor, asking for the removal of details of the ship's bridge structure and radar and radio aerials. There was great concern that newspaper photographs might inadvertently give the enemy useful information. This photograph has been selected from the Daily Herald Archive, a collection of over three million photographs. The archive holds work of international, national and local importance by both staff and agency photographers.
