Original pencil drawing on high quality art paper featuring an RAF Photo Reconnaissance Mosquito Mk IX over the west coast of Norway searching for the German battleship Tirpitz. From 1941 until it was finally sunk by RAF Lancasters in 1944, the Tirpitz posed a serious threat to the vital North Atlantic convoys. Spending most of that time lurking in the relative safety of the Norwegian fjords, it was vital that the RAF gathered up to date information on its continual movements. Mosquito PR crews played a critical role in this objective, flying many dangerous missions to bring back the latest intelligence.
