On 18th February 1944 Mosquitoes of 487 Squadron (New Zealand), 464 Squadron (Australian) and 21 Squadron took off from RAF Hunsdon.
Target – the prison at Amiens, France. In this picture having approached the prison at a height of just 10 feet, Pilot Officer Maxwell Sparks and Navigator Arthur Dunlop dropped their bombs before climbing and barely clearing the prison rooftop.
Every print is signed by the two men depicted in this aircraft:
Flight Lieutenant A.C. Dunlop R.A.F.V.R. (Navigator)
Flight Lieutenant M.N. Sparks AFC R.A.F (Pilot).
