Mk.I Hurricanes of 242 Squadron, under the command of Squadron Leader Douglas Bader, scramble from Coltishall during the height of the Battle of Britain.
Acknowledging the vital role played by the pilots who flew the famous Hurricane during the summer of 1940, Richard’s superb piece recreates a relative moment of calm as the brave young RAF pilots will soon be in action, intercepting Luftwaffe raiders heading to targets at Duxford and North Weald.
This outstanding print is available as a pair with SAFE ARRIVAL.
