HIGH COST by Robert Taylor

 

Lancasters of 619 Squadron return home after a gruelling night-time operation to Stettin Bay. German Night-Fighters have raked the formation and damaged several of the aircraft another attack could happen at any time.

 

This evocative piece recreates a typical scene encountered by many RAF bomber squadrons on raids over enemy territory as a lone aircraft begins to lose altitude and slips behind the returning formation. The entire length of the Lancaster has been raked by gunfire and there are injuries on board so the exhausted Pilot will need help from his Flight Engineer to somehow coax the wounded back to their Lincolnshire base.

 

Adding great authenticity, this moving print has been personally signed by aircrew who flew with the RAF Bomber Command during WWII:

 

Flight Lieutenant GEORGE BRITTON

Warrant Officer RICHARD 'BASHER' HEARNE

Flight Lieutenant TOM AUSTIN DFC AE

Wing Commander 'MAC' ENGLAND DFC*

Flight Lieutenant JOHN COX DFC
