Return From The Fray by Richard Taylor

RETURN FROM THE FRAY

by Richard Taylor

THE OUTCOME OF THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN RESTED IN THE HANDS OF FEWER THAN 3,000 YOUNG MEN, MOST OF WHOM WERE PILOTS

They came from every corner of Britain. And mostly they were young. These fresh faced fighter pilots, joined by an ever-growing band of volunteer airmen from the British Commonwealth and those who had managed to escape from the occupied countries of Europe would, over the summer of 1940, not only hold the world’s most powerful air force at bay, they would defeat it.

Richard Taylor’s stunning piece graphically conveys the conflicting realities of those deadly aerial encounters over southern England during 1940. As the sound of Merlin engines briefly interrupts the tranquillity of a sleepy English village, its residents are determined to carry on with everyday life. In the skies overhead the bitter battle will shortly be reaching its crescendo but, for today at least, the fighting is over as Flight Sergeant George ‘Grumpy’ Unwin, one of the Battle of Britain’s top Aces, and the Spitfire pilots of 19 Squadron return from yet another encounter with Goering’s much-vaunted Luftwaffe.

The Signatures

On the occasion of the

Battle of Britain’s 75th Anniversary,

the number of veterans who saw

action or took part in that epic

battle has sadly dwindled.

However, for collectors and

lovers of aviation, a

small number of these

legendary veterans came

together for the

Military Gallery to personally

autograph this new

commemorative edition.
