Original oil painting on high quality stretched canvas featuring the Dambuster Lancaster of Bill Townsend.
Having crossed Germany and Holland at full throttle and tree top height, Bill Townsend's Lancaster evades the German coastal gun batteries and heads out over the North Sea and homewards. Tasked with attacking the Ennepe Dam, Bill Townsend's Lancaster AJ-O was actually in the air the longest of any taking part in the raid and he was subsequently awarded the Conspicuous Gallantry Medal for valour.
