This early painting by the remarkably gifted artist Richard Taylor depicts Mk.I Spitfires of 610 Squadron flying a defensive patrol low over the White Cliffs during the height of the Battle of Britain in August 1940. An iconic scene that symbolises a crucial period in history.
With a history dating back to the First World War, the Spitfires of 610 Squadron first cut their teeth over the beaches of Dunkirk. Based at Biggin Hill, the squadron was active in the early fighting over the Channel in May 1940, and as the Battle of Britain developed into a full scale offensive, its pilots were engaging the enemy flying two, three, sometimes four sorties a day.
Over the years this has proved to be one of Richard’s most popular releases and it’s easy to see why the veteran-signed prints have sold out.
