A PORTFOLIO TO COMMEMORATE THE 75th ANNIVERSARY OF THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN 1940 – 2015
You can almost hear the roar of their mighty Merlin engines and feel the prop-wash in Robert Taylor’s commemorative salute to the Hawker Hurricane. His classic portrayal of this much-loved fighter depicts a pair of Mk.I Hurricanes from 32 Squadron leading the scramble away from their forward airfield. Often making three, four or five such scrambles a day at the height of the battle, this time they are racing to intercept Luftwaffe intruders who have been spotted crossing the Kent coast.
The prints in this fabulous cameo release are signed by a number of the “Few,” the men who fought and won the Battle of Britain and who the head of RAF Fighter Command, Air Chief Marshal Sir Hugh Dowding, simply called his brave “fighter boys.”
