Overall Print Size: 20 x 16 inches Edition: 350 Subject: Lancasters from 630 and 57 Squadrons.
A strong force of Lancasters from 630 and 57 Squadrons, based at RAF East Kirkby, head out to attack industrial targets in the Ruhr, Autumn 1944.
A total of 212 Operations were undertaken from RAF East Kirkby between August 1943 and the end of WWII, all of which were flown by 630 and 57 Squadrons. It is of great historical importance that every print is personally signed by one of the last surviving veterans that flew combat missions from East Kirkby during WWII.
Each print in Richard Taylor's limited edition, Out from Kirkby, is signed by an RAF Bomber Command veteran who served with 57 Squadron from East Kirkby:
Flight Lieutenant ‘STEVIE’ STEVENS DFC AE Joined 57 Sqn as a Pilot in May 1943 and completed a full tour of 30 Operations including raids over Dortmund, Hamburg and Italy.
