ACTION THIS DAY

ACTION THIS DAY
by Richard Taylor

Flown by many crews, Halifax LV907 ‘Friday 13th’ was typical of the four-engined heavy bombers that formed the backbone of RAF Bomber Command, and served as a symbol to the enduring bravery of the men who flew the ‘heavies’ in action. As dawn breaks over RAF Lissett it reveals that last night’s biting wind has once again brought a covering of snow to the airfield. But, with conditions forecast to improve, tonight’s operation to bomb industrial targets in Germany is set to proceed, and ground crew start to prepare Halifax Mk3 LV907 ‘F-Freddy’, simply known as ‘Friday 13th’, for action.

Overall print size: 345/8” wide x 24¾” high
