Hurricane Scramble by Robert Taylor - ref MW029


A rare Robert Taylor Limited Edition. Released in 1987, Hurricane Scramble depicts a typical scene from a RAF airfield in Southern England during the height of the Battle of Britain, August 1940. This print is signed by four legendary Hurricane pilots who flew during the Battle of Britain.

August 1940 and the Battle of Britain is at its height. Great armadas of Luftwaffe aircraft have made incessant attacks on southern Britain throughout the day. The unmistakable roar of the Merlin engines fills the fighter station once again, as the Hurricanes scramble into the air. It is their sixth operation sortie of the day.

Totally outnumbered in each combat, they have taken losses, but they still have a Squadron Commander, enough pilots, and enough serviceable aircraft. Almost exhausted by the tension of continual combat since dawn, the young, battle-weary pilots roar off into the evening sky for a final duel of the day.

Hurricane Scramble by Robert Taylor is signed by:

Air Commodore PETE BROTHERS CBE DSO DFC
Air Marshal Sir DENIS CROWLEY-MILLING KCB CBE DSO DFC*
Wing Commander BOB DOE DSO DFC*

Wing Commander ROLAND 'BEE' BEAMONT CBE DSO* DFC*
