LUFTWAFFE GALLERY SIGNING EVENT - SUNDAY 19th OCTOBER


For a very special and increasingly rare event, we’ll be joined at the UK Gallery in Wendover by veterans who flew in the Luftwaffe during WWII.

Leutnant HUGO BROCH – vital to all fighter units are the pilots who make such superb wingmen that their leaders are loath to part with them. Hugo Broch was one such wingman. Having joined VI./JG54 in January he flew first with Horst Adameit (166 victories), and later with Bazi Sterr (130 victories), but soon demonstrated his own skill in combat. By the end of 1944 he had lifted his personal score to 71 victories. One of JG54s great Fw190 Aces, Hugo Broch saw combat on the Eastern and Baltic Fronts, and completed the war having flown 324 combat missions, and claiming 81 victories. He was awarded the Knights Cross.

Hauptmann KARL-FRITZ SCHLOSSSTEIN – initially flew Me110 heavy destroyers with JG5, when the Group first arrived in Norway in 1942 to provide air cover for the convoys supplying the rapidly increasing German garrison in that country. He commanded 13(Z)/JG5 from the summer of 1942 to June 1943, and then converted to fly Me109s. Later in Norway he flew the Me410 Hornet with ZG76, but finished the war with JG54 Greenhearts flying Fw190s in the Defence of the Reich.

BLACKBIRD - AN OUTSTANDING NEW RELEASE FROM THE STUDIO OF RICHARD TAYLOR


Richard’s superb new drawing depicts the incredible SR-71 ‘Blackbird’ during one of its long-range reconnaissance missions as it soars high over the mountains below.

Widely regarded as the leading pencil artist in the industry, Richard’s drawing is a lasting tribute to this very special aircraft that holds several world records for being the fastest and highest flying manned aircraft for sustained flight.




COMING HOME TO KIRKBY by Richard Taylor


This superb piece from Richard is yet another example of why he is regarded as one of the best pencil artists in the industry. Completed in his trademark technique with a mixture of graphite with colour highlights on antique buff paper, this stunning collectors piece depicts Lancasters of 630 and 57 Squadron's making a safe return to RAF East Kirkby after another gruelling mission to Germany in 1944.

We are delighted to be hosting a number of exciting RAF Bomber Command Signing events both at the UK Gallery in Wendover and some of the of the leading airshows.
