Towards Night's Darkness by Robert Taylor


Towards Night's Darkness by Robert Taylor features Lancasters of 576 Squadron.

As the setting sun casts a golden glow, a group of Lancasters from 576 Squadron form up after departing from their Lincolnshire base at the start of a raid into Germany in late 1944. The lead aircraft UL-I (LM227) was one of only a handful of Lancasters to complete 100 operational sorties.

Whilst the ‘Few’ of Fighter Command had undoubtedly defeated the Luftwaffe during the Battle of Britain, it was the ‘Many’ of Bomber Command who were to play the pivotal role in delivering to the Allies ultimate victory in Europe. But it came at a terrible cost: with an average age of only 22, the odds of survival were slim and by 1943 the life expectancy for bomber aircrew was just 5 missions. In fact on one raid alone - the Nuremberg raid of 30/31 March 1944 - 543 aircrew were killed, more than Fighter Command lost during the entire Battle of Britain.

Each print in Robert Taylor’s Limited Edition, Towards Night's Darkness, is signed by six highly respected aircrew who flew Lancasters with RAF Bomber Command during WWII:
Squadron Leader GEORGE ‘JOHNNY’ JOHNSON DFM
Warrant Officer HARRY IRONS DFC
Flight Sergeant JIM McGILLIVRAY
Warrant Officer KEN JOHNSON
Warrant Officer JAMES COPUS.
