Richard Taylor’s new painting presents a fine study of a lone Mosquito FB MkVI of 143 Squadron, part of a larger formation of the Banff Strike Wing, high over the Norwegian fjords on an armed rover patrol to seek out enemy surface shipping and submarines, in February 1945. The beauty of the early morning sun, glinting on the snow-covered mountain-tops, contrasts with the menacing job in hand. Bravery, inordinate flying skills, and determination were a prerequisite for the crews of Coastal Strike Command
Every print in this evocotive limited edition is authenticated by THREE crew who flew Mosquitos in the Banff Strike Wing during World War II.
Flight Lieutenant FRANK HAWTHORNE
Flight Lieutenant AUBREY ‘HILLI’ HILLIARD
