June 1944 - The Normandy Portfolio Print Pack by Anthony Saunders. - Airforce-Art.com

DHM6215. Return of the Hunters by Anthony Saunders. <p> Omaha Beach, June 1944.  Throughout the early morning of 6th June 1944, men of the US 29th Infantry Division had fought their way yard by yard across the bloody shingle of Omaha Beach.  Thrown off course by worsening weather, they had finally landed near the village of Saint Laurent-sur-Mer, only to run into withering defensive fire - the strong German opposition was unexpected.  It was the same on most sectors of 'bloody Omaha' beach that morning.  But, showing unparalleled levels of bravery and determination, the US infantrymen finally prevailed and within days the scene on the beach was a hive of activity as 'Mulberry A' - one of two giant artificial harbours that had been towed across the Channel - was erected off this once-deadly beach.  The two Mulberries - one American, one British - were a mammoth feat of engineering, each the size of Dover harbour and containing over 334,000 tons of concrete, ballast and steel.  And yet they took a mere seven days to assemble.  Only one, however, was to survive because, on 19th June, a violent storm swept up the Channel destroying the American Mulberry.  The painting shows a pair of RAF Typhoons from No.245 Sqn over the American Mulberry.  They race back to their base in Hampshire to refuel and rearm after delivering a blistering rocket attack on German positions behind the ever-widening Normandy beachhead. <b><p>Signed by Derek Tapson<br>,Wing Commander Jerry Eaton DFC<br>and<br>Flt. Lt. David Ince DFC. <p>Signed limited edition of 350 prints.  <p>Paper size 26.5 inches x 19.5 inches (67cm x 50cm)  Image size 21.5 inches x 14 inches (54cm x 36cm)
DHM6216. Dawn Breakers by Anthony Saunders. <p> As the first rays of dawn broke over Gold Beach on the morning of 6th June 1944, twenty-three Halifax bombers from No.76 Sqn headed inland over the breaking surf below.  Their task was to annihilate the large German coastal gun battery of Mount Fleury that overlooked the beach where elements of the British 50th Division would shortly be landing.  As ships of the Royal Navy joined the barrage and with the battery all but silenced, the bombers headed north, back towards England.  The painting catches the moment as the Halifaxes, now escorted by American P-51s of the 359th Fighter Group, survey the extraordinary sight unfolding below them.  Carried by a vast flotilla of landing craft, the first assault brigades of the 50th Division stream towards the Normandy shore where, despite heavy initial opposition, the British forces soon broke through.  The German defenders who had survived the assault on the Mount Fleury battery had been cowed into submission, the survivors quickly over-run and taken prisoner.  Their 12mm guns had offered no resistance and remained silent throughout.  By midnight the 50th Division had landed over 25,000 men, and linking up with the Canadians on Juno Beach, had secured a deep bridgehead along a six mile front.  The Battle for Caen and their long, slow march to Berlin had begun. <b><p>Signed by Flt Lt Eric Bernard<br>,Flight Lieutenant James Hampton<br>and<br>Warrant Officer Rex Statham. <p>Signed limited edition of 350 prints.  <p>Paper size 26.5 inches x 19.5 inches (67cm x 50cm)  Image size 21.5 inches x 14 inches (54cm x 36cm)
