STRIKE WING ATTACK
Frank Wootton pays his own tribute to the brave crews of Coastal Command's 'Strike Wings'. Their job was to attack enemy shipping making it's way through the North Sea or Baltic. The German convoys were protected by heavy anit-aircraft ships, Eboats and sometime fighter cover.
Although the Mosquito was a firm favourite of the Strikepilots, virtually all cut their teeth on the reliable and rugged Bristol Beaufighter. Frank Wootton depicts the Beaufighters of the Langham and Strubby Wings attacking an enemy convoy off the Friesen Islands in July 1944.
