  • First Strike features the Mosquitos of 27 Squadron - the Flying Elephants - newly arrived at Agartala in north-east India. Led by their CO, Wing Commander J.B. Nicolson VC of Battle of Britain fame, a pair of Mosquito FBVIs power their way home across the lush jungle-covered hills of northern Burma.

    They have just completed the squadron's first combat operation, a successful strike against Japanese ground targets along the vital railway link near Mandalay on Christmas Day 1943. Below them, in contrast to the savage jungle war, a group of native working elephants take a hard-earned drink.

    Every print in Richard's new edition has been personally signed by RAF aircrew who flew the Mosquito during WWII, creating a fitting tribute to this magnificent aircraft and making it an important addition to any aviation art collection.
