Spitfire Country by Nicolas Trudgian

A rare secondary market print by Nicolas Trudgian featuring Spitfires of 603 Squadron during the Battle of Britain.

A typical scene from a bright August morning in that momentous summer of 1940. Having climbed into the dawn sky at daybreak, the Spitfires of No 603 Squadron have already been in action, and with more heavy raids on the plotters table, they scurry back to Biggin Hill to re-arm and refuel. A Messerschmitt Me109, shot down during the previous days fighting, lies discarded in a hay field, its lucky pilot having escaped with his life. Meanwhile, the beautiful Kent countryside comes awake as it prepares for the toils of another glorious summers day.

Spitfire Country - The Signatories

This print is signed by 3 highly respected Spitfire pilots who flew in the Battle of Britain with 603 Squadron:
Flight Lieutenant Ludwik Martel KW** VM
Wing Commander Peter Ovler DFC
Squadron Leader Basil Stapleton DFC.

Overall size   38” x 24”
