Operation Chastice by Robert Taylor

A rare and much sought after Robert Taylor print depicting the legendary Dambusters raid.

 Robert Taylor’s classic painting portrays the Mohne dam at the moment it was breached. Dinghy Young’s bomb has just exploded as his Lancaster exits through a hail of tracer and flak. The Lancasters of Mick Martin and Guy Gibson are seen below, having already made their bombing runs they circle with navigation lights on in an effort to draw ground fire away from Young’s aircraft.
