Mk I Spitfires of 610 Squadron fly a defensive patrol low over the White Cliffs during the height of the Battle of Britain in August 1940. A superb painting that symbolizes a crucial period in history.

No. 610 Squadron, with a history going back to the First World War, now equipped with Spitfire Mk I’s, cut its teeth over the beaches of Dunkirk. Based at Biggin Hill, the squadron was active in the early fighting over the Channel in May 1940, and as the Battle of Britain developed into a full scale offensive, its pilots were engaging the enemy flying two, three, sometimes four sorties a day.


Joining artist Richard Taylor in signing each print in the edition are THREE Spitfire fighter pilots who flew and fought in the Battle of Britain.  Every print is individually hand-numbered.

Flight Lieutenant WILLIAM J. CORBIN DFC
Flight Lieutenant TREVOR GRAY
