Great Air Battles Over The Western Front

Lancaster No. 61 Sqn Nuremburg Germany March 1944

Detailed to attack Nuremburg one night in March 1944 the aircraft was attacked by fighters, although driven off the bomber had sustained much damage. The starboard wing, the flaps and undercarriage nacelles were hit by bullets. The mid-upper and front turrets were damaged and the windscreen was shattered with parts of the airframe also shot away. Four members of the crew were injured, and most of the navigational equipment was useless.

Sergeant Chapman although badly wounded remained at his post obtaining fixes which were of inestimable value in fixing the aircrafts position during its return flight. Finally the English coast was reached and Pilot Officer Freeman having also shown great skill, courage and determination during the flight managed to land the bomber despite a punctured landing wheel. It was not until the aircraft was safely landed that Sergeant Chapman informed his Captain about his wounds, subsequently he was decorated with the The Conspicuos Gallantry Medal.

...we wanted to tell you how impressed we are with the detail of the ship. It's beautiful... Jack took your sketch over to his mother's house ( she is 87 soon ) she took one look and said that's "his" ship. She had a lot of memories that came flooding back.....we are now having her write down her stories to keep along with the painting.
