Hurricanes of No.257 Squadron attack a large force of Heinkel 111 and Dornier 17 bombers at 12,000 feet over London on 15th September 1940, during the climax of the Battle of Britain.
Released as a three print series to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain these pieces are difficult enough to find individually but a matching numbered set is even more difficult to acquire along with EAGLE ATTACK and SUMMER VICTORY and is priced for the three print set.
The second in the trilogy paid tribute to the aircraft of the Battle of Britain, shooting down 80% of the RAF’s victories – the Hawker Hurricane – and was personally signed by FOUR Battle of Britain Hurricane Aces:
- Air Commodore Peter Brothers CBE DSO DFC*
- Group Captain Frank Carey CBE DFC** AFC DFM
- Squadron Leader Geoffrey Page DSO OBE DFC*
- Group Captain Peter Townsend CVO DSO DFC*
Aces High has taken a few copies of Hurricane Force and matted them to conservation standards to include a pair of museum quality replica RAF wings together with the original signatures of another FOUR Hurricane Aces who flew during the Battle of Britain:
- Group Captain Tom Dalton Morgan DSO OBE DFC*
- Wing Commander Roland 'Bee' Beamont CBE DSO* DFC* DL
- Wing Commander Paul Farnes DFM
- Group Captain Denys Gillam DSO** DFC* AFC
- 36 x 26 inches
