On a Wing and a Prayer by Philip West features a Royal Navy Swordfish preparing to take off from its carrier deck.
The venerable Fairy Swordfish was the Fleet Air Arms premier torpedo-bomber at the outbreak of World War 11. It may have looked archaic in appearance, but its courageous crews proved time and time again that it was a potent fighting machine. 'Stringbags' as they were affectionately known, served in several important roles and theatres including Coastal Command, the Mediterranean and flying from MAC-ships protecting North Atlantic and Arctic convoys.
Each print in Philip West's Limited Edition, On a Wing and a Prayer, is individually signed two former Royal Navy Swordfish pilots:
Sub Lieut (A) Stanley T. Brand RNVR
Sub. Lt Cdr (A) John Moffat RNVR - attacked and help sink the German battleship Bismarck.
