Height Of The Battle - CA

A rare Robert Taylor two print edition signed by seven distinguished Spitfire and Hurricane pilots. Comes with matching numbered Companion Print.

Robert Taylor portrays Squadron Leader ‘Sailor’ Malan DFC, Commanding Officer of 74 Squadron and one of the great Battle of Britain Aces, in his famous painting Height of the Battle. Having already made one diving attack into the force of Luftwaffe He111 bombers approaching London with their fighter escort, ‘Sailor’ peels his Spitfire over for a second attack. Another top Ace, Pilot Officer Harbourne Stephen DFC, is hard on his heels. Below them, typifying the scene as it was on the afternoon of Wednesday 11 September 1940, Mk.I Hurricanes from 17 and 56 Squadrons have already joined the fray.
