WINTER COMBAT - The Masterwork Drawing -

Designed by Sydney Camm in the early 1930s, the Hurricane was the RAF’s first fighter capable of flying at over 300mph and proved to be one of the most rugged fighters in the history of combat aviation. Hurricanes fought with distinction in the Battle of France and, during the Battle of Britain, shot down more enemy aircraft than its famous counterpart, the Spitfire.

Hugely versatile, the Hurricane flew throughout the whole of WWII including northern Europe and the Mediterranean to North Africa and the Far East.

Completed in his trademark technique combining a mixture of graphite with colour highlights on antique buff paper, this superb tribute has been personally signed by two highly-regarded WWII Hurricane Pilots:
