On the 9th September 1940, Number 92 Squadron was thrown into the Battle of Britain. They had fought bravely during the evacuation from Dunkirk, and after a spell on convoy patrol, they were thrust into the desperate climax of the greatest air battle in history.
Flying Spitfires from Biggin Hill, they immediately went into action attacking massive Luftwaffe bomber formations and their escorting Me109s. Southern England was under severe threat, but 92 Squadron’s impact was immediate: during the next four months, its young pilots brought down no fewer than 127 enemy aircraft.
Available both individually or as a pair with HOMEWARD BOUND as part of The Battle of Britain Portfolio, this superb piece portrays Spitfires from 92 Squadron as they successfully engage Me109’s over the harvested fields of southern England, in August 1940. The desperate action of aerial combat is beautifully captured in this compelling and accurate reconstruction of a famous fighter squadron at war.
