  • On Wednesday 22 June 1938 a new sound was heard over the humid streets of Singapore as four Bristol Pegasus radial engines heralded the arrival of the RAF’s newest flying-boat. For the men of 230 Squadron gathering on the slipway at Seletar, the approaching aircraft looked formidable and even from a distance, they could spot the powerful array of .303 machine guns it possessed. 230 Squadron had been chosen as one of the first units to be re-equipped with the world’s most advanced flying boat - the Short Sunderland.

    Richard Taylor has once again completed a magnificent painting as a tribute to the outstanding Sunderland and the men who flew it in the Far East. As the sun beats down on tropical island anchorage a Mk III Sunderland from 230 Squadron unloads essential supplies at a forward base on an archipelago deep in the Indian Ocean. A second aircraft, breaking a patrol, prepares to land.

    The Double Remarque Edition will be issued with a DOUBLE SIZE drawing overflowing with detail.

    Signatures: Each print is signed by three highly respected Sunderland pilots who flew with 230 Squadron in the Far East.
