A lone Mosquito Mk.VI of 143 Sqn, part of a larger formation of the Banff Strike Wing, passes high over the Norwegian fjords on an armed rover patrol to seek out enemy shipping and submarines, February 1945. The beauty of the early morning sun, glinting on the snow-covered mountain-tops, contrasts with the menacing job in hand.
Bravery, inordinate flying skills, and determination were a prerequisite for the crews of Coastal Strike Command – rare qualities admirably conveyed in Richard’s rendering.
Adding great authenticity, this evocative print is individually signed by the artist and THREE aircrew who flew Mosquitos with the Banff Strike Wing during the war:
Flight Lieutenant FRANK HAWTHORNE
Flight Lieutenant AUBREY ‘HILLI’ HILLIARD
Flying Officer MAURICE WEBB DFM
