With the familiar Lincolnshire countryside beckoning, a Lancaster of the famous 617 "Dambusters" Squadron, makes its final approach after a raid on Germany, late summer 1944. Gerald Coulsons painting Summer Harvest winds the clock back in recreating a typical East Anglian countryside scene in late 1944. With the sun well above the horizon, a Lancaster comes thundering in on finals after a gruelling night precision bombing mission over Germany. Below, farm workers busy gathering the summer harvest, stop to marvel at the sheer power and majesty of the mighty aircraft, and to dwell briefly on what horrors its crew may have endured on their perilous journey. The edition is signed by the artist along with distinguished RAF aircrew veterans who flew operations in the Lancaster with 617 Squadron; Flight Lieutenant James Castagnola DSO, DFC Flight Lieutenant Arthur Poore DFC Squadron Leader E. Gray Ward DFC Edition Size: 300 Print Size: 30.5 inches x 23.5 inches (77cm x 60cm)
