RAF Bomber Command campaign in Europe lasted for six years, flying at night often in dreadful weather with intense flak over their targets. Add to this increasingly the presence and effectiveness of Luftwaffe Night Fighters. Bomber Command took a beating and suffered appalling losses, of the 120,000 who served over 55,000 were killed in action.

"Strike and Return" illustrates a Lancaster of 460 Squadron crewed by British and Commonwealth servicemen. The Squadron flew many of the most dangerous and important raids of the War, becoming the highest decorated Squadron in Bomber Command. The print is signed by seven Bomber Command pilots

The companion print "Night Attack" shows a Fw190 Night Fighter attacking Bill Reid's Lancaster. Injured in the head, shoulder and hands with the windscreen shot our Reid pressed on to the target and despite his injuries guided the Lancaster and his crew safely home For this remarkable courage Bill Reid was awarded the Victoria Cross.
