A SUMMER FOR HEROES By Nicolas Trudgian signed x30 (no.18/50)
The white cliffs of the south east coast of England, standing defiantly in the face of invaders, seen during the conflict in the summer of 1940, the Battle of Britain, the Royal Air Force's finest hour.
Spitfire pilots of No.65 Squadron, heading home to re-arm and refuel, display the exuberance of youth as they swoop low in celebration over a downed Bf109.
Above them, a squadron of Hurricanes climbs out to intercept raiders above the Channel where the swirling paths of duelling aircraft are traced in vapour, high in the summer sky.
Sadly none of the signers are left alive today. Paul Farnes the last surviving Ace passed away 28/1/2020 .
This print has all 30 signatures (from all 3 LTD editions) - For the very best example !
A great investment piece !
