They Landed by Moonlight by Robert Taylor portrays a Special Operations Lysander on a covert mission in occupied France.
Robert Taylor captures to perfection the secret world of the Special Operations pilot with his atmospheric painting They Landed By Moonlight. Packed with tension, he recreates the high drama of a typical rendezvous as a pilot from No. 161 Squadron based at Tangmere, readies his Lysander aircraft for take-off in a remote field deep inside occupied France. Clutching a Luger in one hand, he completes pre-take off checks as three passengers are spirited away by an armed member of the French Resistance. It is July 1943.
Included is a matching numbered Companion Print Special Duties depicting a Lysander by moonlight heading out on a mission over occupied France in 1943.
Each print in Robert Taylor's Limited Edition, They Landed By Moonlight, is signed by four highly decorated Special Duties pilots and one of the most famous secret agents of WWII:
Captain Murray Anderson
Lieutenant Colonel Francis Cammaerts
Air Chief Marshal Sir Lewis Hodges
Wing Commander Len Ratcliff
Group Captain Hugh Verity.
