An interesting one from the same source, Lincoln RF461 of RAF Signals Command. 

This was one of the last handful of Lincolns in RAF service, based at Watton with B Flight 151 Sqn.  They were used for training UK and NATO SAM operators until engine maintenance issues caused their withdrawal in March 1963.
