Canadian Flight Lieutenant Johnny Kent leads the Hurricanes flown by the Polish pilots of No.303 Squadron during September 1940 – at the height of the Battle of Britain.
In his moving and highly evocative tribute to the nearly 3000 young men from 14 nations who made up RAF Fighter Command during the Battle of Britain, Robert Taylor has chosen 303 Squadron – the highest scoring unit in 11 Group – to represent all those who flew and fought in one of history’s most crucial and decisive battles.
This outstanding piece has been skillfully executed in Robert’s unique blend of pencil and paint giving the prints a unique sepia, almost wartime, feel to them.
The edition is signed by Aircrew who participated during those crucial months, this is an outstanding opportunity for all collectors of aviation art and Battle of Britian memorabilia.
