THE DAWN PATROL - Legacy Remarque Edition
Billy Bishop and the pilots of 85 Squadron climb their SE5A fighters into the cool morning sunlight above the fields of Northern France on June 16, 1918.
A tough Canadian, Billy Bishop was considered an outstanding fighter pilot endowed with great courage. Though he led 85 Squadron with distinction, he preferred to fight his air combats single-handed. Indeed, he was awarded the Victoria Cross when, on one of his solitary forays, he attacked an enemy airfield at dawn shooting down three aircraft as they took off. Unlike many of his contemporary aces, Bishop survived the war and returned to Canada with 72 victories.
Along with artists Robert Taylor and Richard Taylor, this print carries the original signatures of two highly-regarded pilots who flew in combat with the Royal Flying Corps during the First World War and achieved Aces status:
- Captain Robert Childlaw-Roberts
- Wing Commander Gwilym Lewis
Available in six different Legacy Remarque sizes...
Just TWENTY Legacy Remarques are available where artist Richard Taylor will create a specially hand-drawn Remarque in the lower border of the print.
These are available to be ordered in the following sizes:
- 'Single Remarque'
- 'Double Remarque'
- 'Triple Remarque'
- 'Quadruple Remarque'
- ‘Special Remarque' (5-6) or
