Pilot Signed Print
A Winter's Dawn
by Philip West
peaceful scene at East Kirkby in the winter of 1944 gives
a very real feel for the vitally important work undertaken
by ground crew in all weathers. At this stage of the war,
to help identification at a distance, the tail fins of 57-squadron
Lancasters wore a black vertical bar on a red background.
The squadron flew on 348 raids, with 108 Lancasters lost in
action plus 31 in accidents.
All the prints are signed
by 57 Squadron Lancaster pilot
Flt. Lt. Phil Ainley DFC
Artist Proofs are also signed by three additional
57 Squadron Lancaster pilots
Marshall of the RAF
Sir Michael Beetham GCB, CBE, DFC, FRAcS.
