A generation after the diggers of Gallipoli forged the Anzac legend, another group of courageous Australians took the Anzac spirit to new heights. Aboard a Lancaster Bomber dubbed “G of George” these sons of Gallipoli protected Europe with a gallantry and skill that amazed even the German Luftwaffe. When George was retired to Australia in 1944, “he” was greeted with adulation befitting any returning war hero. As more and more Australians learn of the history of the aircraft – a record 89 operational missions – and its tremendous efforts in staying the advance of the Nazi threat, we realise the courage of the Australian aircrews who piloted this remarkable piece of technology. 75 years after G for George’s homecoming, the Lancaster, the airmen and ground crews who become part of the legend are commemorated in the G for George 75th Anniversary Homecoming Gallery Editions Print, exclusive to The Bradford Exchange., only from The Bradford Exchange.

Meticulously hand-crafted to a gallery standard, this richly-detailed print showcases the work of Tim Jenkins. Considered one of the world’s greatest military aviation artists, his striking montage style work depicts George touching down in Australia with ground crews servicing the legendary war bird. Presented in an elegant mahogany-tone hardwood frame, the edition also feature two 24-carat gold-layered coins, each commemorating George’s arrival in Australia. A piece of genuine Lancaster metal from WWII Lancaster NX611 “Just Jane,” is included as a fitting tribute to Avro’s remarkable Lancaster fleet and one Lancaster in particular who 75 years on, still makes Australia proud. Crafted as a collector’s masterwork, the G for George 75th Anniversary Homecoming Gallery Editions Print is issued in an edition strictly limited to 199 individually-numbered prints.
