  • Sale
  • Regular price $165.00


At the height of the Battle of Britain, Spitfires from 610 Squadron return to base to re-fuel and re-arm after a tense encounter with Luftwaffe Messerschmitt Bf109 fighters, 12 August 1940.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Anthony Saunders’ beautiful painting transports us to the morning of Monday 12 August 1940, a day when 11 Group airfields at Hawkinge, Manston and Lympne airfields all came under heavy attack from Luftwaffe raiders. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Faithfully reproduced as a fine art limited edition and printed onto borders that were personally signed many years ago, very copy in the edition carries the original and authentic autographs of three distinguished fighter pilots and aircrew who flew in combat during the Battle of Britain. Each man bravely earned the right to be known as one of ‘The Few’ and have sadly since passed away which gives even greater meaning to the release and creates a remarkable collector’s piece to be cherished for future generations.
