Colonel BOB MORGAN - Original Pencil Drawings
A Tribute to Colonel BOB MORGAN and the famous MEMPHIS BELLE
The ‘Belle’ was the first B-17 in the 91st Bomb Group to complete 25 missions. During that time her Captain, Bob Morgan, never lost a single crew member and his gunners were credited with destroying eight enemy fighters, the last of which was claimed on 17 May 1943 during a mission to bomb enemy U-boat pens at Lorient, France.
The centrepiece of this stunning portfolio is a stunning new drawing entitled ‘The Rising Mist’. As the March sunlight burns off the early morning mist at Bassingbourne, James Verinis, co-pilot of the ‘Memphis Belle’, awaits the signal to start engines as the crew prepare for another perilous mission.
Alongside is a second, completely separate work, an insightful head and shoulders portrait of the Captain of the Belle, Bob Morgan. Both drawings have been mounted to full conservation standards in a single composition to include the rare and fully-authenticated original autograph of the man himself:
