Ground crew tirelessly carry out vital maintenance on a mighty Lancaster bomber in preparation for the next raid over occupied Europe.

Richard's outstanding piece acts as a lasting tribute to all those who served with RAF Bomber Command during WWII - from the devoted ground crew to the hard-working aircrew.

This is an ideal piece to have additionally autographed at our many Bomber Command signing events, creating a very personal and potentially valuable multi-signed print.
