Size: 27.5" x 17.5" Edition: 200 Subject: RAF Lancasters of 57 Squadron.
This peaceful scene at East Kirkby in the winter of 1944 gives a very real feel for the vitally important work undertaken by ground crew in all weathers. At this stage of the war, to help identification at a distance, the tail fins of 57-squadron Lancasters wore a black vertical bar on a red background. The squadron flew on 348 raids, with 108 Lancasters lost in action plus 31 in accidents.
Each print in Philip West’s Limited Edition, A Winter's Dawn, is signed by Lancaster pilot Flt. Lt. Phil Ainley DFC.
