1990This is the original Gouache painting by Graham Coton.
An original painting of a real Lancaster bomber from 150 RAF Bomber Squadron nick named "We Dood It Too" in formation over a river estuary in Holland during World War II.
Over 47,000 airmen were killed in operations over enemy held territory in World War II but the crew of "We Dood It Too" survived a tour of 36 ops.
Coton's dramatic painting depicts two Lancasters flying low over a river estuary in Holland to avoid anti-aircraft fire on their way to Germany to deliver their bomb loads. A superb painting showing the dangers faced by RAF bomber crews throughout the war.
This painting was presented to the Bomb Aimer Pilot Office Vernon Wilkes, DFC.
