Return of the Few by Robert Taylor - rare aviation art print

A RARE LIMITED EDITION PRINT BY ROBERT TAYLOR FEATURING SPITFIRES OF 92 SQUADRON RETURNING OVER THE ENGLISH CHANNEL DURING THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN, 1940.

One of Robert Taylor’s most iconic and best-loved images of the Battle of Britain, RETURN OF THE FEW portrays a loose formation of Spitfires from 92 Squadron heading back to their base after a successful sortie over northern France. As the fighters approach the indomitable white cliffs near Dover, the pilots have decided to make a protective low-pass over a group of Royal Navy armed steam trawlers buffeting up the Channel, operating in their new-found role of inshore coastal patrol. The trawlermen acknowledge their RAF comrades with a friendly wave.

Return of the Few - The Signatories

This print is signed by the legendary Spitfire Aces:

Al Deere
Johnnie Johnson
Bob Stanford-Tuck

Note re signatures: Released in 1986 by the Military Gallery, this print edition was issued with four signatures. This particular print only has three - it is missing the signature of Peter Townsend. It is not know why this is, but it is likely to just be an oversight during the signing session - it is correctly signed and numbered by the artist and is in all other respects the same as the other prints in the edition. The missing signature has been reflected in the asking price which is considerably lower than the usual market rate.

Overall size   27 x 20 inches
Edition of 1000
