Channel Sweep by Richard Taylor


Channel Sweep by Richard Taylor features Mk1 Spitfires from 92 Squadron over the English Channel in 1940.

On 14 June 1940, the first German jackboots were heard on the streets of Paris. Within days France signed an armistice and Hitler could now turn his avaricious eyes north and across the grey waters of the Channel. The island of Britain stood alone and, faced with the threat of imminent invasion, few gave her much chance of survival. Before the all-conquering Panzers could invade, Germany needed to gain air superiority and Goering boasted that his Luftwaffe ‘would quickly sweep the RAF from the skies’ - how wrong he would be. The Battle of Britain began on 10 July 1940 and for the next eight weeks most front-line squadrons were often flying four missions a day. Against overwhelming and seemingly impossible odds, the RAF repelled the Luftwaffe and by the end of October it was over.

Each print in Richard Taylor's Limited Edition, Channel Sweep, is signed by three Battle of Britain veterans:
Wg Cdr JOHN ‘TIM’ ELKINGTON
Wg Cdr TONY PICKERING AFC
Flt Lt WILLIAM ROBERT ‘BOB’ HUGHES DFC AE.
