The first unit to receive the Mosquito was 105 Squadron; taking delivery of their new machines
in November 1941 and often operating alongside 139 (Jamaica) Squadron, they soon became
experts on delivering blistering low- level precision strikes such as the audacious attack on the
Gestapo headquarters building in Oslo on 25 September 1942. They are also the unit chosen by
leading aviation artist Anthony Saunders to represent all those who flew the Mosquito in his
dramatic painting Mosquito Thunder. Set on 1 April 1943 – the twenty-fifth anniversary of the
RAF’s formation – Anthony depicts Sqn Ldr Roy Ralston DSO DFM leading a group of the
squadron’s aircraft as they race home to RAF Marham following a highly successful strike on the
railway workshops in the German city of Trier.
