SURPRISE ATTACK - Original Pencil Drawing
Having encountered German Night Fighters over their target, a crippled RAF Lancaster limps back towards the North Sea, low on power and far behind the main force. With the cloak of darkness fading, the crew know that another attack could happen at any moment and can only hope thick cloud offers some disguise. Little do they know, they’ve already been spotted.
We’re seldom able to offer Robert’s original work for sale, let alone a detailed piece completed on archival paper which is personally signed by two famous WWII veterans. These original autographs represent both sides depicted in Robert’s piece and are indicative of the dramatic struggles between the crews of RAF Bomber Command and the Luftwaffe fighter pilots during the war:
- Group Captain JAMES TAIT DSO** DFC*
One of the most decorated Bomber pilots of the war, he flew with 51, 35 78 & 617 Sqns
- Generalleutnant GÜNTHER RALL Knight’s Cross w/ Oak Leaves & Swords
Achieving 275 aerial victories, he finished the war as the third highest-scoring Ace in history
