FRANK CAREY - RAF Pilot Signature - RAFF22


Collector's autograph display including the original signature of Hurricane Ace Group Captain Frank Carey CBE, DFC, AFC, DFM - RAF Battle of Britain Pilot.

Frank Carey flew Hurricanes almost throughout the war, becoming the most highly decorated Hurricane fighter pilot of WWII. Flying before, during and after the Battle of Britain, Carey often flew six operational sorties a day. 

He was promoted to Squadron Leader in August 1941, forming No. 135 Squadron, who were subsequently deployed overseas in December 1941. Traveling via Takoradi, Cairo, Basra, Karachi, and Calcutta they finished up landing in Rangoon on the 19th January 1942 in the middle of an air raid. Frank Carey claimed his first victory on 29th January 1942 where he shot down the ‘Nate' Ki-27 of Sgt-Maj Nagashima of the 77th Sentai. The following month, on February the 26th, he led an attack on Moulmein where he claimed another 3 ‘Nate’ Ki-27s taking his total to 28 victories.

This superb double mounted ensemble remembers Frank Carey's time in the Far East. Artwork by Darryl Legg features Frank's Hurricane in combat with Japanese fighters over Burma.
