The air resonates to the unmistakable sound of Merlin engines as Lancasters from 630 and 57 Squadrons skim low over the Lincolnshire countryside whilst returning to their base at East Kirkby, in the summer of 1944.

This superb piece from Richard is another example of why he is regarded as one of the best pencil artists in the industry. Completed in his trademark technique with a mixture of graphite with colour highlights on antique buff paper, this stunning collectors piece acts as a lasting tribute to the men of RAF Bomber Command.

RAF East Kirkby was home to Lancasters of 630 and 57 Squadrons who often flew together on long-range bombing raids including attacks against Berlin and Hitler’s alpine home at Berchtesgaden. It is of great historical importance that every print has been personally signed by one of the last surviving veterans based at RAF East Kirkby during WWII.
