A Winter’s Welcome

A Winters Welcome by Stephen Brown

As dawn breaks a Special Operations Executive Lysander Mk III of 161 Squadron taxis to halt after a long flight from occupied France. In the cramped rear compartment two secret agents prepare to disembark, relieved at last to be able to stretch their legs. They are greeted by a fresh fall of snow, with heavy banks of cloud promising more to come. Also there to welcome them are senior RAF officers who will waste no time in de-briefing the agents.

The Special Duties Lysander pilots were as brave and as skilled as any from the fighter or bomber squadrons but the nature of their missions meant they remained largely unheralded, even after the war ended.  These highly dangerous clandestine missions to take undercover agents in and out of France were a vital part of the allied intelligence gathering operations and undoubtedly had a significant part to play in the eventual victory in Europe.

Please Note: It is very difficult to represent these paintings accurately with the sort of low resolution image files that are needed for web publication, on top of the fact that how they appear will vary depending on individual monitor settings - much of the subtlety and detail of the artist’s work may be lost and colours may not look quite the same. We are sure you will be delighted when your receive your painting but if for any reason you are not please be assured we provide a ‘no quibble’ money back guarantee that includes your return postage.
