Go onto Google and type 'Handley Page Halifax' and you will find links to dozens of sites. Just a sample...

Hastings Met.1 202Sqn from 1950 till 31 July 1964 @ Aldergrove.
Dark slate grey overall finish, white circle with 202's duck badge just under cockpit, white lightning-flash cheat line and white disc on rudder with 202 in what looks like yellow."Royal Air Force Coastal Command" along fuselage above windows.

Ref is a B/W pic in a book which I'll have a go at scanning & email to you.
