Most Memorable Day by Robert Taylor - Drawing


Robert Taylor relives General Adolf Galland's personal account of the combat at noon on 21 June 1941 over northern France.

With his wingman Bruno Hegenauer, Galland powers his Me109 through the fighter escort to attack Blenheim bombers of 21 Sqn, raking the lead aircraft with cannon fire. In the background, a fierce dogfight is developing between the Me109s of JG26 and Spitfires of 303 Sqn. Losses and victories will be high on both sides. In two missions that day Galland claimed two Blenheims and one Spitfire, survived a forced crash-landing, and later a parachute escape from his blazing Me109. That evening he learned he was to become the first recipient of the Knights Cross with Oak Leaves and Swords - Germany's highest award for heroism. 

This print is taken from Robert Taylor's final drawing in preparation for the full size oil painting of the same name.
