COMBAT OVER DOVER - Original Pencil Drawing
Mk.I Spitfires of 92 Squadron join the fray as a formation of Hawker Hurricanes tussle with Bf109s over the white cliffs of Dover during the Battle of Britain, summer 1940.
In a dramatic recreation of events during the latter stages of the battle, Richard portrays a moment typical of the daily encounters between the Luftwaffe and RAF Fighter Command in his superb new drawing.
Executed with the precision that only a master draughtsman can create, on this occasion it has been completed on archival paper personally signed by an incredible nineteen veterans who took part in the Battle of Britain.
To make it even more special, our expert framing team have included a further eleven signatures in the conservation matting.
A stunning and completely unique THIRTY signature collector’s piece!
