Battle of Britain Trilogy - The Supermarine Spitfire - 3 Pilot Sigs


A special tribute to the Supermarine Spitfire and its part in the Battle of Britain, this collector's autograph display includes the original signatures of three legendary Spitfire pilots: Don Kingaby, Alan Deere and Bob Stanford-Tuck.

The Spitfire was, and still is, an icon of aviation history. In 1940 it came to symbolise the fighting spirit of a nation when control of its skies was the last remaining barrier to enemy invasion. Standing alone against the assembled might of German Forces, only the devil-may-care courage and sheer determination of the RAF’s young pilots, stood between Britain's freedom and Hermann Goering's mighty Luftwaffe. When the Battle of Britain began in the summer of 1940, although it was the Hurricane squadrons that bore the brunt of the fighting, it was the Spitfire that fired the nation’s imagination. Arguably the greatest defensive fighter ever built, this legendary little aircraft, revered by its pilots and feared by it foes, earned a place in aviation folklore like no other aircraft before it or since.

This display ensemble pays homage to the Spitfire Mk I and the dashing young pilots that flew it in combat in the Battle of Britain. The highly accurate rendition by prominent aviation artist Darryl Legg is triple mounted with gold plated RAF pilots wings and carries the original signatures of three of the greatest Battle of Britain pilots ever to fly the Spitfire in combat:

Wing Commander DON KINGABY  DSO, DFC, DFM**

Air Commodore ALAN DEERE  DSO DFC**
