Few fighter pilots scored a victory on their first day in combat. Bob Stanford-Tuck managed to destroy no fewer than three enemy aircraft on his first engagement. Adding credit to this feat, the combat took place during the early part of WWII when most of the time the RAF pilots were heavily outnumbered.
Fearless and effective in battle, no matter what the odds, Stanford-Tuck achieved a significant 29 aerial victories as early as 1942 when he was shot down by groundfire over Northern France.
Robert Taylor’s painting depicts Bob Stanford-Tuck destroying his third enemy of the day – an Me110 – over Dunkirk, and Bob’s own words when he saw the painting were : ”The painting is so realistic. That is just how I remember the action.”
