  • As dawn breaks over RAF Lissett it reveals 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.

    Within a few hours tension on the airfield will mount, and the snow encrusted countryside will reverberate to the potent roar of mighty radial engines as the "heavies" of 158 Squadron take to the air. Once again the crews will be put to the test, and once again they will brave the fury that the enemy will unleash upon them.

    "Friday 13th" flew an impressive total of 128 operational sorties with 158 Squadron between March 1944 and April 1945, and with Richard Taylor's prints signed by no less than three former members of 158 Squadron, this evocative and eye-catching masterpiece is a collectors' gem.
