Previous   Up   Next

Towards Nights Darkness by Robert Taylor 3

A rare Robert Taylor print featuring Lancasters of 576 Squadron.

As the setting sun casts a golden glow, a group of Lancasters from 576 Squadron form up after departing from their Lincolnshire base at the start of a raid into Germany in late 1944. The lead aircraft UL-I (LM227) was one of only a handful of Lancasters to complete 100 operational sorties.

Released in 2012 the VC Edition of just 25 copies sold out almost immediately. The VC Edition was presented mounted to include five extra signatures, all legends of Bomber Command and VC holders.
