Height and Sun by Robert Taylor


"If you had the height, you controlled the battle. If you came out of the sun, the enemy could not see you. If you held your fire until you were very close, you seldom missed". 

These three basic rules contributed to the prowess in aerial combat of some of the most successful fighter pilots in history and seldom were they more valuable than when outnumbered. Between July and October 1940 the brave young pilots of RAF Fighter Command were under intense pressure from the constant attacks of the Luftwaffe. The Hawker Hurricane was the primary RAF fighter of the Battle of Britain, accounting for 80 percent of Allied victories.

In Robert Taylor's outstanding painting, Hurricanes of 32 Sqn climb high into the morning sky, gaining Height and Sun in an attempt to take the advantage over the onslaught of enemy fighter - August, 1940. Featuring a typical Robert Taylor skyscape, this dramatic image captures the surreal calmness above the clouds, belying the fury of action and ultimate sacrifices made in those crisp blue skies. With the prints in the edition personally autographed by members of The Few this is a fitting testimony to the brave men who fought during one of the most crucial period's of British history. 

Each print in Robert Taylor's Limited Edition, Height and Sun, is signed by three famous fighter pilots who took part in the Battle of Britain:
Group Captain Billy Drake DSO DFC*
Flight Lieutenant Richard Jones
Squadron Leader Geoffrey Wellum DFC.
