As Britain holds itself ready for perhaps the greatest battle it has ever fought, a pair of Mk 1 Hurricanes of 213 Squadron set out from their base at Biggin Hill for an early morning patrol over the Channel, they could meet the enemy at any moment.
As they cross the coast, they are joined in spirit by a 213 Squadron Sopwith Camel from an earlier conflict. With the Battle of Britain poised to begin the great task of defending the nation will fall upon their shoulders. But at least for today the spirit of their guardian angel will be at their side.
THE WONDER OF GICLÉE:
With their ultra high resolution and no visible dot pattern, these high quality Giclée prints have digitally replicated Gerald Coulson’s original painting with astonishing quality, faithfully laying down all the hues and tones of the original in minute detail using fade-resitant archival inks. They are the closest reproduction you are ever likely to see, a fitting tribute to this respected artist, his new memorable painting, and to the venerable signatures of the veterans who have signed them.
