Original illustration of the Avro Lancaster bomber, as flown by No. 300 (Land of Masovia) Polish Bomber Squadron of the Royal Air Force (RAF) during the Second World War. Formed from veterans of the Polish Air Force in 1940, No. 300 Squadron was one of several such Polish squadrons which took part in the war in RAF colours. Before the war was over, No. 300 Squadron flew almost 4,000 sorties in a variety of aircraft, including Fairey Battles light bombers, Vickers Wellington medium bombers, and later the Lancaster strategic bomber. They were based at RAF Faldingworth in Lincolnshire.

The Lancaster in this illustration is LL804, BH-F, nicknamed the "Lady in the Champagne Glass" for its nose art. The bomber's nose art tells its story - thirty bombs for its first tour, twenty champagne glasses for the second, and twelve skulls for the third. In total the Lady in the Champagne Glass carried out over 50 operations.

The illustration was produced in partnership with the Polish Heritage Flight, which honours the memory of the Polish pilots who served with the Royal Air Force in the Second World War. You can learn more about them and their mission here.
