Description

Robert Taylor’s painting portrays the renowned defiance of the U-boat crews. Caught on the surface by a PBY Catalina of the Fleet Air Wing based at Port Lyautey in French Morocco, the gun crews of a type VIIc U-Boat are quickly into action. The 3.7 cm anti-aircraft gun is hurriedly reloaded while on the upper platform the 2cm anti-aircraft twins take chunks out of the Catalina’s tail – enough damage to secure a respite from the attack. Soon they will dive to relative safety beneath the Atlantic swell.
