Day Duties for the Night Workers - Bomber Command Ed
Overall Print Size: 20 x 14 inches Edition: 125 Subject: Lancaster being prepared for a mission.
This print comes with a free matching numbered copy of the book Heroic Endeavour, signed by the author Sean Feast.
As the massive Lancaster looms majestically over them, the ever vigilant ground crew begin the task of preparing ‘their’ aircraft for the coming night’s operation. Checking, repairing and double-checking again, making sure that nothing goes wrong on the next trip, nothing that could endanger the lives of the crew who depend on them. It will be a race against time.
