Spitfire Scramble by Richard Taylor


Spitfire Scramble by Richard Taylor features 602 Squadron Spitfires taking off during the Battle of Britain.

Commemorating the 80th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain 1940 – 2020.

From the day they’d moved down from Scotland in early August, 602 Squadron had been in the front line of the air fighting over southern England, bearing the brunt of the Luftwaffe’s increasing attacks. Based at Westhampnett, a satellite of nearby sector station RAF Tangmere, under their commanding officer Squadron Leader Sandy Johnstone, they would become one of longest serving front line squadrons during the Battle of Britain and one of the highest scoring.

Richard’s exquisite cameo Spitfire Scramble depicts a typical daily scene at Westhampnett as Flight Lieutenant ‘Mickey’ Mount, flight commander with 602 Squadron, leads the final section of Spitfires away from the base in a frantic scramble to intercept another large Luftwaffe force heading towards the Royal Navy’s main base at Portsmouth and radar stations on the Isle of Wight in August 1940. 

To add real collector status to the edition, each print bears the original signature of the pilot who had been with his squadron longer and flown more operational sorties during the Battle of Britain than anyone else – John Freeborn. Flying Spitfires with 74 Squadron, in that time he achieved seven victories to become a Battle of Britain Ace for which he was awarded the DFC.

Spitfire Scramble by Richard Taylor is signed by famous Battle of Britain Spitfire pilot:
Wing Commander JOHN FREEBORN DFC* - flying Spitfires with 74 Sqn during the battle, he achieved seven victories to become a Battle of Britain Ace for which he was awarded the DFC.
