Over the Beaches by Philip West


Over the Beaches by Philip West features RAF Spitfires providing top cover during the D-Day landings.

In the early hours of 6th June 1944, the campaign to liberate Europe began following many months, if not years of planning and preparation. The RAF was heavily committed in support of allied land and sea forces flying combat air patrols, ground attack and reconnaissance missions. After a further year of fighting a hard fought victory was achieved.  Philip West’s dramatic painting shows Spitfires of 222 Squadron flying top cover for Typhoons who in turn are giving ground support wherever needed.

Each print in Philip West’s Limited Edition, Over The Beaches, is signed by two Spitfire pilots and two Typhoon pilots who flew during Operation Overlord:
Flying Officer Tony (Titch) Hallett DFC
Flight Lt. David Ince DFC
Flying Officer Tom Hannam
Flight Lt. John ‘Chips’ Carpenter DFC.

Lysanders of 161 Special Operations Squadron turn onto their final course to a clandestine landing field somewhere in central occupied France, during a full moon period in 1943.  Based at Tempsford, Bedfordshire and often operating from Tangmere to shorten the flight, the pilots flew a dead reckoning course to their first turning point, usually on the River Loire, using rudimentary navigating equipment.  The moonlit town of Blois is easily distinguishable by its chateau, churches and bridge with the Forest of Chambord beyond.  The agents in the rear cockpit prepare themselves by torchlight for the forthcoming landing.  Each print in Philip West's Limited Edition, Loire Rendevouz, is signed by four highly distinguished Lysander pilots: Flt. Lt Peter Arkell, OBE, USAF Medal of Distinction Flt Lt. Murray Anderson, DFC*, US Air Medal Flt. Lt. R G 'Bob' Large, DFC, Legion d'honneur Sir Lewis Hodges, KCB, CBE, DSO, DFC.Subject: Special Operations Westland Lysander.
