 On her first operational sortie and carrying full D-Day markings, Mk. IX Spitfire NH341 DB-E ‘Elizabeth’ from 411 (Grizzly Bear) Squadron RCAF helps to escort a force of some 220 Lancasters on a raid to bomb the docks at Le Havre harbouring German E-boats, 14 June 1944.

Anthony’ compelling painting is now available as a superb artist-signed limited edition print to commemorate the efforts of all allied airmen on D-Day and throughout the Normandy Campaign.

The raid depicted to Le Havre was Bomber Command’s largest daylight raid of the war so far and in the cockpit of Elizabeth was pilot ‘Bruce’ Whiteford who had named the aircraft after his wife. Whiteford went on to fly her on more missions than anyone else and described the operation as ‘bags of flak and fire’.

Today Elizabeth forms the backbone of premier flight experiences with Aero Legends where her two seat configuration allows enthusiasts the opportunity to experience life in the cockpit of perhaps the most iconic British aircraft in history – a Supermarine Spitfire.

Widely considered as some of the best in the industry, Anthony’s unique pencil remarques, limited to only 25 copies, are individually created in the lower margin of the print and are a perfect way for enthusiasts to collect original art.

Created specially for the serious collector, the DOUBLE REMARQUES are much bigger than a standard remarque and exclusively restricted to just 10 copies worldwide.

Giclee Studio Proofs: Using the most sophisticated digital Giclée technology, each Studio Proof is printed directly on to fine canvas creating a stunning piece which has all the look and feel of an original painting.
