“When I completed painting “Dawn of a Legend” I could not
resist the urge to paint this new picture of Mosquitoes.
I could see the concept in my head and I just had to paint it!
Although not intended as a companion print to “Dawn of a Legend”,
I think they work well together and do justice to these men and their
truly remarkable Mosquito aircraft”.
Stephen Brown, artist.
Seagulls take flight as the distant drone of Merlin engines starts to rise above the sound of wind and surf on their deserted beach. Overhead Mosquito B Mk IVs of 139 Squadron return low across the North Sea after a successful mission. In moments they will be gone, with only a few miles to navigate before they land at their base at Horsham St Faith in Norfolk.
