We Salute You - A Tribute to Bomber Command print by Philip E. West
As night falls Lancaster bombers head out over Lincoln Cathedral on yet another highly dangerous mission over enemy territory. Lancaster aircraft first entered service in 1941, normally with a crew of seven whose average age was 22. With a top speed of 287mph and ability to carry a massive bomb load of 22,000lbs, Lancasters proved a formidable as well as reliable aircraft, one held in the highest regard by its young, though highly motivated crews.
Despite increasingly capable aircraft like the Lancaster, a great deal was asked of Bomber Command crews and their aircraft, resulting in substantial losses. Of the 7373 Lancasters built 3677 were lost. From the over 125,000 involved in Bomber Command during the war 55,573 were killed, 8,000 wounded and 10,000 became prisoners of war.
