Hell Burned Through | David Mould: The Art and Story of a Lancaster Rear Gunner

Susan Raby-Dunne


| /

'Hell Burned Through is a view of Royal Canadian Air Force Flight Sergeant Mould's service as a rear gunner on a Lancaster Bomber. Is is doubtlessly unique amongst the histories and analyses of the bombing campaign, with his paintings, sketches and terse logbook entries woven into his story told by author Susan Raby-Dunne. We get to se vividly and concretely, what he experienced as an RCAF member serving with the Royal Air Force's No. 49 Squadron during his lonely, dangerous work - crouched for hours in a tiny compartment at the very end of the Lancaster, scanning the skies for enemy fighter aircraft bent on destroying his aircraft and crew mates.'
