STRIKE ON BERLIN
by Anthony Saunders

This was Saturday, 30 January 1943, the tenth Anniversary of the Nazi Party coming to power, and Goering was about to deliver the main speech in tribute to the Party and its leader, the Fuhrer – Adolf Hitler.

The Royal Air Force had other plans for the anniversary. In stark defiance of the imagined air security safeguarding Berlin, brave pilots of 105 and 139 Sqn’s took to the air in de Havilland Mosquitos, on course for Germany. Their mission: RAF Bomber Command’s first daylight raid on Berlin!

The raid was timed to perfection and three Mosquito’s of 105 Sqn raced headlong, low level towards their target – the Haus des Rundfunks, headquarters of the German State broadcasting company. It was an hour before Goering could finally be broadcast. He was boiling with rage and humiliation.

Anthony Saunders dramatic painting pays tribute to this pivotal moment in the war. His masterful brush capturing the Mosquito B.Mk.IVs of 105 Sqn departing the target area, following their successful strike on the Haus des Rundfunk.
