STRIKE AND RETURN - RAAF COMMANDERS EDITION

By Robert Taylor

A classic Robert Taylor masterwork limited edition commemorating the indomitable aircrews of RAF Bomber Command.

Overall print size: 30 3/4" wide x 24 1/8" high

During World War II, 460 Squadron RAAF played an integral role within RAF Bomber Command. They more than lived up to their squadron moto Strike and Return. In doing so, they flew more sorties, dropped more tonnage and were awarded more decorations than any other squadron within RAF Bomber Command.

"I stood on the end of the runway at RAF Binbrook during the filming of the Memphis Belle and gazed over the ageless, beautiful Lincolnshire landscape. It was easy to visualize the Lancasters of 460 Squadron returning home, battle-worn and tired as they would have done some fifty years earlier, and to imagine the emotions of the crews as they brought their mighty Lancasters back to this famous wartime base." - Robert Taylor
