Holding the Line by Nicolas Trudgian


Holding the Line by Nicolas Trudgian features Hurricanes bringing down a Dornier Do17Z during the Battle of Britain.

Nine Dornier Co17Z bombers of 9th Staffel, KG76, detailed to attack the RAF airfield at Kenley were spotted as they approached the English coast, and Hurricanes were scrambled to intercept. As the German bombers lined up to attack the airfield, Hurricanes of 111 Squadron came diving upon them. Suddenly all hell broke loose. Bombs rained down on the airfield, one Dornier was brought down and two more were finished off by the Hurricane pilots. Now the chase was on to catch the others. 

Nicolas Trudgian's action-packed painting depicts the scene as the surviving Dorniers reach the English coastline. Only one of the nine Dorniers that set out will return to base on that 18th day of August, 1940. 

Each print in Nicolas Trudgian's Limited Edition, Holding The Line, is signed by three leading Hurricane pilots who flew and fought the Battle of Britain:
Air Commodore John Ellacombie
Group Captain Alec Ingle
Group Captain John Peel.

Published in 1998 this print sold out some time ago and is becoming increasingly difficult to find. This copy is in mint condition and comes with the original Certificate of Authenticity.

Note: the 'Nicolas Trudgian' logo on the bottom right of the image does not appear on the actual print itself.
