Eve of Destiny by Richard Taylor - Collectors Edition


Eve of Destiny by Richard Taylor features Paratroopers of the US 101st Airborne Division prepare to board Douglas C-47s at Upottery Airfield on the eve of D-Day.

Specially commissioned painting to honour the veterans who fought with one of the most famous Airborne Divisions in history – the US 101st. Movingly, it depicts the fighting men of one their most illustrious units - Easy Company from the 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment - the famous Band of Brothers, as they take inventory of their equipment during the early evening of 5 June 1944. Alongside them on the hard-standing of Upottery Airfield in Devon the C-47s of the 438th Troop Carrier Group with their hastily-applied invasion stripes, stand primed, ready to carry the elite unit to Normandy in the early hours of D-Day.

Eve of Destiny by Richard Taylor has been personally signed by four veterans that jumped on D-day with the 101st Airborne:
Sergeant WILLIAM ‘BILL’ GALBRAITH - Item Company, 3rd Battalion, 506th PIR
Private 1st Class BILL WINGETT - Easy Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th PIR
Captain EMMETT ‘ROSY’ NOLAN - HQ Company, 2nd Battalion, 502nd PIR
Staff Sergeant PAUL MARTINEZ - Dog Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th PIR.
