  • Spitfires from 74 Sqn cross the English coast at Beachy Head after intercepting a formation of Luftwaffe raiders during the Battle of Britain, August 1940.

    To cross the Channel and breach British defenses, the Luftwaffe had to gain control of the skies, and by July 1940 the most famous air battle in history was underway. Impossibly outnumbered, the courageous young men from Fighter Command – Churchill’s ‘Few’ – battled to defend their Sceptred Isle and by October had emerged defiantly victorious.

    THE SIGNATURES

    This edition carries the signatures of veterans who fought during the Battle of Britain, including John Freeborn who is featured in the piece. It is a poignant reminder that a number of these iconic men have sadly passed away since signing, giving enthusiasts the opportunity to add a piece of great historic significance to their collections.
