A moving Limited Edition print paying tribute to all those who served with Bomber Command during the Second World War

It took the courage of an aircrew to take a bomber on a raid and get home in one piece. And it took hours of gruelling hard work by their ground crew to make sure they did so as safely as possible.

The men of Bomber Command depended on teamwork and trust both in the air and on the ground, because not everyone was a flier. A typical Lancaster had a flight crew of seven, but back on the ground it took three or four times that number to make sure the aircraft was repaired, serviced and fine-tuned to perfection. If the RAF had some of the finest aircrews in the world, so were the ground crews, all highly trained and skilled technicians doing their bit to keep the bomber offensive going. Amongst them were mechanics who could strip an engine in minutes, engineers, fitters, carpenters, electrical and instrument technicians along with armourers, bomb-loaders and bowser drivers, all working around the clock in sometimes cold, lonely and exposed dispersal points. And all making sure that no faults could imperil the safety of the men in the air.


The three pieces forming Keith Burns’ moving triptych Bomber Boys pay a fitting tribute to the thousands of RAF ground crew whose often untold but dedicated duty did so much to keep the aircraft of Bomber Command flying.
