The Lancaster Bomber holds a special place in my family’s heritage as my Grandfather, Eric Bawden, was a flight mechanic who serviced these planes at Middleton St. George, England and Niarobi, Africa during the second World War. I had the privilege and honour to fly on the Mynarski Lancaster Bomber back in 2007 at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in Hamilton, Ontario. This moving experience granted me profound reverence for those who lost their lives in those planes. Over 10,000 Canadians died in Lancaster Bombers during World War 2. In all, there were 7,377 Lancaster Bombers built for Bomber Command in England;430 of which were built in Canada at Victory Aircraft in Malton, Ontario. Today, there are only 2 Lancs flying in the world.
A Lancaster crew consisted of 7 members which are metaphorically symbolized in the 7 crows in the composition. The rising sun seemed to be an appropriate setting as many Lanc sorties were carried out at night and the pilots who survived these missions would return at daybreak.”
