This highly detailed drawing on sepia toned paper features pilots and ground crew gathered around RAF Hawker Hurricanes of 257 Squadron during the Battle of Britain, 1940. The pilots will get some brief moments of respite before being scrambled again to intercept incoming Luftwaffe aircraft.

Wing Commander BOB STANFORD-TUCK  DSO DFC**
Flying a Spitfire with 92 Squadron, Bob Stanford-Tuck destroyed a Me109 and two Me110 enemy fighters over Dunkirk on his first day in combat. It was a portent of what was to come. The swashbuckling, debonair Stanford-Tuck became one of the top scoring Aces in the Battle of Britain, a darling of the Press and a household name right across Britain. At the height of the battle, in mid-summer 1940, Stanford-Tuck was given command of 257 Hurricane Squadron which he led with great panache until mid-1941. Returning to fly his beloved Spitfire, he took command of the Wing at Duxford, later leading Biggin Hill’s famous Spitfire Wing. With a tally of 29 victories, in January 1942 Bob Stanford-Tuck’s luck ran out when he was shot down by ground fire at low-level over Northern France. He survived, was taken prisoner and spent the rest of the war as a POW.

Issued as a highly restricted edition of just 15, this beautifully presented autograph display includes metal RAF wings, a miniature replica DSO medal, two pieces of artwork by Stephen Brown and of course the original signature of Wing Commander BOB STANFORD-TUCK  DSO DFC**.
