Made of wood to conserve on wartime metal supplies, the Mosquito (affectionately known as "Mossie") performed a variety of tasks for the Royal Air Force. It saw use as a bomber, night-fighter, recon aircraft, and was well respected in all roles. This tremendously successful aircraft also enjoyed the lowest loss rate of any Bomber Command aircraft. The scene in this painting takes place of 11 April 1944, when six Mosquitos of 613 Squadron came in fast and low over Holland to attack the Gestapo headquarters across from the Peace Palace at The Hague. Here we see two of those six Mosquitos just after they have neatly bounced a pair of bombs through the front door of the Gestapo building.

Note: like all Valiant Clan prints, the actual print has a white border with text at the bottom displaying the aircraft name and a description of the action portrayed. (See the P-51B Mustang as an example.)  The above scan only shows the image (and not the surrounding border or text), and is merely meant to give you an idea of the image content.
