Loire Rendezvous by Philip West


Loire Rendezvous by Philip West features Special Operations Executive Westland Lysander over occupied France.

Lysanders of 161 Special Operations Squadron turn onto their final course to a clandestine landing field somewhere in central occupied France, during a full moon period in 1943.  Based at Tempsford, Bedfordshire and often operating from Tangmere to shorten the flight, the pilots flew a dead reckoning course to their first turning point, usually on the River Loire, using rudimentary navigating equipment.  The moonlit town of Blois is easily distinguishable by its chateau, churches and bridge with the Forest of Chambord beyond.  The agents in the rear cockpit prepare themselves by torchlight for the forthcoming landing.

Each print in Philip West's Limited Edition, Loire Rendevouz, is signed by four highly distinguished Lysander pilots:
Flt. Lt Peter Arkell, OBE, USAF Medal of Distinction
Flt Lt. Murray Anderson, DFC*, US Air Medal
Flt. Lt. R G 'Bob' Large, DFC, Legion d'honneur
Sir Lewis Hodges, KCB, CBE, DSO, DFC.
