Out of the Night, the First to Go In - D-Day Ed - SOLD OUT
Overall Print Size: 21.5 x 25.5 inches Edition: 200 D-Day Edition Subject: Halifax with Horsa gliders.
Silently out of the night they came. With flaps deployed, three timber and plywood Horsa gliders swept swiftly down through the night skies, rapidly closing with their objective – Pegasus Bridge over the Caen Canal. On board, with tension etched deep into their blackened faces, men from the Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire Light Infantry, part of the British 6th Airborne Division, braced themselves for landing. They, and sappers from the Royal Engineers, were about to become the first fighting force to land in France on D-Day. They were about to make history.
