by Richard Taylor
A Book & Print Portfolio Dedicated To 617 Squadron
Richard’s spectacular drawing, completed on buff paper with subtle colour highlights, depicts Ken Trent and his crew as they gather in readiness for 617 Squadron’s raid on the Valentin U-boat construction facility at Farge, north of Bremen, 27 March 1945. Their modified Lancaster carries a massive ‘Grand Slam’ bomb as the final preparations are made the aircraft.
BOMB DOORS OPEN by Flt Lt KEN TRENT DFC*
Ken Trent is one of the last surviving veterans to serve with 617 Squadron during WWII.
His remarkable story begins in the East End of London before taking him on a journey through RAF pilot training and on to complete more than forty perilous missions on Lancaster bombers over the unfriendly skies of occupied Europe.
Ken recalls these events with modesty and an unfailing sense of humour which serves as an inspiration to all.
