Coming Home to Kirkby by Richard Taylor - Drawing


Coming Home to Kirkby by Richard Taylor features Lancasters from 630 and 57 Squadrons.

The Avro Lancaster formed the backbone of RAF Bomber Command and was considered by many as the best bomber aircraft of WWII. 630 Squadron formed at East Kirkby in November 1943 as part of Bomber Command’s strategic bombing campaign. Equipped with Lancasters, they often flew together with 57 Squadron from their shared Lincolnshire base to take part in many major bombing raids including those on Berlin and Hitler’s alpine home at Berchtesgaden.

Completed in his trademark technique with a mixture of graphite with colour highlights on antique buff paper, this stunning collectors piece by Richard Taylor depicts Lancasters of 630 and 57 Squadron's making a safe return to RAF East Kirkby after another gruelling mission to Germany in 1944. 

Each print in Richard Taylor's limited edition 'Coming Home to Kirkby' is signed by an RAF Bomber Command veteran who served with 57 Squadron from East Kirkby: 

Flight Sergeant LEN MANNING 

Serving as a Rear Gunner on Lancasters with 57 Sqn, his aircraft was shot down by a German Night Fighter on his 3rd Operation on the night of 18/19th July 1944. After baling out he was taken in by French civilians in the town of La Trétoire who treated his wounds and helped him evade capture until the Allied advance reached northern France. Still suffering from his injuries, he returned to Britain in early September 1944.
