Original oil painting on high quality stretched canvas featuring Lancaster stragglers from 83 Pathfinder Squadron returning from a mission that has taken them deep into enemy territory. A combination of flak and Luftwaffe night fighters has taken its toll and many aircraft are damaged, low on fuel and carrying wounded crew members. Some may not make it to their base at RAF Wyton but those that do could well be back in the air before too long.
The canvas is signed on the back in permanent ink by the following distinguished Lancaster crew:
Flt. Lt. Russell (Rusty) Waughman DFC, AFC
Lancasters of No 101 Special Duties Squadron
Wt. Officer Rupert Noye DFC
72 Ops as Rear Gunner on Wellingtons then Lancasters of 166 Squadron.
