EVE OF DESTINY - Framed Collector's Piece
Richard Taylor’s stunning piece serves as a tribute to the veterans who fought with one of the most famous Airborne Divisions in history – the U.S. 101st. Movingly, it depicts the fighting men of one their most illustrious units - Easy Company from the 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment - the famous 'Band of Brothers', as they take inventory of their equipment during the early evening of 5 June 1944. Alongside them on the hard-standing of Upottery Airfield in Devon the C-47s of the 438th Troop Carrier Group with their hastily-applied invasion stripes, stand primed, ready to carry the elite unit to Normandy in the early hours of D-Day.
To make this Limited Edition even more special, our expert framing team have included in the matting an additional four signatures, creating a stunning FIVE signature 101st Airborne piece:
