THE WORLD’S FOREMOST AVIATION ARTIST COMMEMORATES THE 75th ANNIVERSARY OF THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN 1940 – 2015

Spitfires of 616 Squadron scramble from RAF Kenley during the heavy fighting of the Battle of Britain, late August 1940. Below them a Hurricane of 253 Squadron, sharing the same base, is being prepared for its next vital mission at a distant dispersal.

All through the long summer of 1940, as Britain stood alone, a small band of fighter pilots took part in the greatest aerial battle in history. Day after day the men of Fighter Command valiantly took to the air to defend their country from the Luftwaffe and the threat of German invasion and Nazi tyranny. Outnumbered, but never out-fought, they fought to the point of exhaustion and, in doing so, paid a heavy price. But they won.

As part of the commemorations for the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain, this unprecedented edition is issued as a lasting tribute to the heroic young men of RAF Fighter Command who fought during the summer of 1940.
