Winter Combat by Richard Taylor - Drawing


Winter Combat by Richard Taylor features Hurricanes of 87 Sqn in the winter of 1940.

Designed by Sydney Camm in the early 1930s, the Hurricane was the RAF’s first fighter capable of flying at over 300mph. Compared to Mitchell’s radical new Spitfire the Hurricane was built using the traditional methods that underpinned the high regard pilots had for Hawker aircraft. It would soon prove to be one of the most rugged fighters in the history of combat aviation. 

Following the outbreak of war Hurricanes fought with distinction in the Battle of France. During the Battle of Britain it was responsible for shooting down more enemy aircraft than its famous counterpart, the Spitfire and from the beginning of July until the end of October 1940, four-fifths of all enemy aircraft destroyed fell victim to the guns of a Hurricane. This hugely versatile aircraft fought throughout the whole of WWII including northern Europe and the Mediterranean to North Africa and the Far East. 

The Battle of Britain may be over but the first snows of winter hint at the bitter fighting that still lies ahead as Squadron Leader Ian Gleed and the Mk.I Hurricanes of 87 Squadron head home to RAF Exeter. 

Each print in Richard Taylor's limited edition 'Winter Combat' is signed by two famous Hurricane pilots:
Warrant Officer ERIC CARTER - 615 & 81 Squadrons
Squadron Leader OWEN PARRY DFC AE - 11 Squadron.
