Original oil painting on high quality stretched canvas featuring de Havilland Mosquito B. Mk. IVs of 139 Squadron, No. 2 Group, flying from RAF Marham in the autumn of 1943. The battle-hardened Mosquito crew get a few brief moments of respite allowing them to take in the wild beauty of the Norfolk Broads. The Mosquito was a daring concept: an unarmed bomber made mainly of wood and relying on pure speed for defence against the might of the Luftwaffe. It proved to be immensely successful and the versatility of its design allowed it to be adapted to many roles including night fighter, anti-shipping, high altitude intruder, bomber support, Pathfinder duties, reconnaissance and even aircraft carrier operations.
