OPS ON HOLD
by Richard Taylor

A TRIBUTE TO THE MEN OF RAF BOMBER COMMAND

March 1944 and heavy snow has settled firmly over the frozen Lincolnshire countryside around RAF Fiskerton. For once the Lancasters of 49 Squadron stand quietly idle at their dispersal points around the airfield’s perimeter. It’s a scene recreated at many other heavy bomber airfields across the east of England and the young airmen who crew these mighty machines now wait patiently for the inevitable thaw that will soon see them in combat again.

Overall Print Size: 23¼” wide x 14¼” high

To help commemorate those who served, this evocative edition is personally signed by Pilots and Aircrew who flew Lancasters with Bomber Command during World War II and is issued in support of the Bomber Command and POW Associations.

Along with the artist Richard Taylor each print is individually signed by three veterans who flew and fought with Bomber Command:

A/Cdre CHARLES CLARKE OBE
Bomb Aimer with 619 Sqn on Lancasters

Flt Lt RUSSELL ‘RUSTY’ WAUGHMAN DFC AFC
Pilot with 101 (Special Duties) Sqn on Lancasters

Flt Lt KEN THOMAS DFC
Pilot with 622 Sqn on Short Stirlings and Lancasters
