Pilot Profiles Album - RAF Fighter Command - Military Gallery


A tribute to the fearless WW2 pilots of RAF Fighter Command.

A superb limited edition album that looks closely at 26 distinguished and highly decorated Fighter Command veterans. First released in 1984 by the Military Gallery, the album comprises 26 printed sheets (each protected in the album by a sheet of clear acetate), one per pilot, each of which has a pilot bio, notes on their squadrons, combat reports and aircraft types flown, a wartime photo and illustrations of their medals for gallantry - each profile is personally signed by the pilot.

The veterans featured include Bob Stanford-Tuck, Paddy Barthropp, John Cunningham, Johnnie Johnson and Pete Townsend. The album cover is in RAF blue with an RAF crest embossed with gold leaf. A rare opportunity to acquire this much sought after collection of signatures.
