With its origins dating back prior to the outbreak of WWII, 820 Naval Air Squadron played a significant role during the Falklands War from 1982 and flew over 4700 hours during the conflict.
Piloting a Sea King helicopter from the squadron, Prince Andrew was first to lift off survivors after the Atlantic Conveyor was hit by an exorcet missile.
Robert Taylor’s fine painting depicts the Prince in the thick of the action and Robert even commented:
“I had to get this one right. His Royal Highness wanted to approve it before the prints were made!”
Each print is individually signed by the artist and Prince Andrew’s C.O.
