Dragons of Colombert, a rare secondary market print by Nicolas Trudgian featuring Me190s of JG3 during the Battle of Britain.
Sporting the group's Dragon emblem on their engine cowlings, Me109E Fighters of JG3 scramble from their base at Colombert, near to the French coast of Calais. It is mid-August 1940 and, under the command of Hans von Hahn, the Luftwaffe pilots will fly a 'free hunting' patrol across the English Channel. Combat with the RAF will be inevitable.
This print is signed by by two distinguished Me109 pilots:
Oberstleutnant Gunther Scholz
With JG54 during the Poland and France campaigns and then the Battle of Britain. Transferred to JG5 on the Eastern Front before being posted to Norway.
Iron Cross I - 33 victories.
Oberleutnant Erwin Leykauf
With JG27 during the Battle of Britain then transferred to the Balkans and the Eastern Front. Joined JG26 flying Fw190s and finished the war flying Me262s with JG7.
Iron Cross I and II - 33 victories.
This print is one of a small number remarqued by the artist with a pencil drawing in the border.
