Mosquito Pathfinders - Artist Proof by Philip West


Mosquito Pathfinders by Philip West features Pathfinder Mosquitos of 169 Squadron being prepared by ground crew.

Groundcrew busy themselves readying their de Havilland Mosquito as the aircrew head out towards the aircraft for yet another mission to a high value target over occupied Europe during WW2. Their dangerous job as Pathfinders was to accurately mark and bomb the target for the main heavy bomber force. It required great skill in navigation, airmanship and courage. The Mosquito proved to be a real thoroughbred and idea for many varied combat sorties so earning the nick-name the Wooden Wonder.

Each print in Philip West's Limited Edition, Mosquito Pathfinder, is signed by veteran Mosquito pilot:
Flying Officer Doug Waite.

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.Subject: Special Operations Westland Lysander.
