Artwork Description

A Dornier 217 of KG-2 overflies a railway station somewhere in southern England during the early part of WWII. A British officer’s wife is seeing him off at the station as they take their dog for a stroll. Troops wait on the platform for the train, which is just pulling in. A group of airmen jump off a truck and head across the line to entrain. Suddenly, the German bomber screams overhead, racing for home after having bombed a target earlier in the night. The ground trembles with it’s engines, and you can imagine the shock and surprise of the people on the ground. Another dramatic, fleeting moment in the titanic struggle of war.
