The Homecoming remains one of Robert Taylor’s most dramatic and creative pieces, capturing, as it does, a moving scene in 1942. A small group of stubby-nosed Fw190s from III./JG2, en-route to their home base to the north-east of Brest, have caught sight of a small group of U-boats from the Kriegsmarine’s 9th Submarine Flotilla returning to port. As they are at the end of their coastal sweep, the JG2 pilots decide to welcome the U-boats home and give the submariners a suitable fly-past salute. For the tired crews this was a moving ‘homecoming’ to the U-boat crews after such an arduous spell out in the North Atlantic.
In addition to the artist this print was individually signed by THREE U-boat captains and THREE distinguished Fw190 pilots from World War II.
