Grand Slam by Richard Taylor


Grand Slam by Richard Taylor features 617 Squadron Lancaster being prepared for the raid on the Valentin U-boat construction facility, 27 March 1945.

A Book and Print Portfolio Dedicated To 617 Squadron.

Richard’s spectacular drawing, completed on buff paper with subtle colour highlights, depicts Ken Trent and his crew as they gather in readiness for 617 Squadron’s raid on the Valentin U-boat construction facility at Farge, north of Bremen, 27 March 1945. Their modified Lancaster carries a massive ‘Grand Slam’ bomb as the final preparations are made for the aircraft. 

BOMB DOORS OPEN by Flt Lt KEN TRENT DFC*

Ken Trent is one of the last surviving veterans to serve with 617 Squadron during WWII. His remarkable story begins in the East End of London before taking him on a journey through RAF pilot training and on to complete more than forty perilous missions on Lancaster bombers over the unfriendly skies of occupied Europe. Ken recalls these events with modesty and an unfailing sense of humour which serves as an inspiration to all. 

The special edition includes a copy of the new book BOMB DOORS OPEN, which is personally signed by the author:
Flt Lt KEN TRENT DFC* 

Each book is accompanied by the matching numbered print GRAND SLAM by Richard Taylor which is personally autographed by three distinguished airmen that flew with 617 Sqn during WWII:
Flt Sgt CHARLES AVEY
Wg Cdr JOHN BELL MBE DFC
Flt Lt ARTHUR POORE DFC.
