Crucial to every squadron in the RAF were the unsung heroes of World War II - the ground crew. Without the vital support of these dedicated men who refuelled the aircraft, rearmed them, maintained them and kept them flying, the pilots and aircrew would, quite simply, never have got into the air. Robert Taylor's drawing VITAL SUPPORT, the latest in his new Graphite Portfolio Series, shows ground crew bombing up a Mosquito of RAF Bomber Command.
