Richard Taylor’s hauntingly beautiful new painting ‘Action This Day’ depicts a scene on a cold winter’s morning, as dawn breaks over RAF Lissett, revealing that last night’s biting wind has once again brought a covering of snow to the airfield. But, with conditions forecast to improve, tonight’s operation to bomb industrial targets in Germany is set to proceed, and ground crew start to prepare Halifax Mk3 LV907 ‘F-Freddy’, simply known as ‘Friday 13th’, for action.

This iconic aircraft flew an impressive total of 128 operational sorties with 158 Squadron between March 1944 and April 1945.
