The Avro Lancaster is a four-engined heavy bomber designed and built by Avro for the RAF. It first saw active service with RAF Bomber Command in 1942 and became the main heavy bomber used by the RAF.

Norman drew this work in 1943, probably following the bombing raid on the German dams. The aircraft in the drawing carries the markings of 613 Squadron which was the squadron of the Dam-busters raid. Norman's dedication to fine detail in the drawing is quite remarkable

The raid is on a dockyard with the searchlights pointing towards the aircraft, the ships are clearly visible in the estuary and the aircraft has been hit by shrapnel, all of which Norman has incorporated int eh drawing
