A rare Nicolas Trudgian remarqued limited edition print paying tribute to the pivotal role of the Hawker Hurricane in the Battle of Britain.
Nicolas Trudgian’s incredibly detailed painting depicts Hurricanes of 601 Squadron at the height of the Battle of Britain. Refuelled and rearmed the Hurricanes leave Tangmere airfield and climb out over a Sussex village railway station to re-join the intense aerial battle raging over the south of England.
This unique print has a double remarque in the lower border and has been counter signed by no less than 43 RAF fighter pilots.

Tangmere Hurricanes by Nicolas Trudgian
The print is number 5/10 Artist Presentation Edition - a small edition traditionally reserved as gifts for the pilot signers of the print. It has been given a double pencil remarque by the artist - the Battle of Britain Hurricanes of legendary Aces Douglas Bader and Bob Stanford Tuck. At a later date multiple Battle of Britain pilot signatures were added.
As a bonus, also included with the sale are the cut signatures of Douglas Bader and Bob Stanford Tuck - taken from damaged prints. These would be perfect to mount below the remarque drawings if the print were to be framed.
Purchased from CCB Aviation in the UK about 10 years ago. It was acquired with long term investment in mind and accordingly has been carefully stored flat - it has never been framed. It is supplied with the original Certificate of Authenticity and sales flyer. It is in pristine condition.
