A stunning original oil painting depicting Hawker Hurricanes of 605 (County of Warwick) Squadron being scrambled and taking off from their airfield in Southern England at the height of the Battle of Britain, during the summer of 1940. 605 Squadron was on the front line during the Battle of Britain and played a key role in defending the skies over England.

The lead aircraft depicted in the painting is Hurricane L2122 UP-L of Pilot Officer Robert Eric Jones. The artist was fortunate enough to be in contact with PO Jones before he passed away in the 1990's, and who very kindly shared his experiences during his flying career with the RAF in a series of letters. In particular, the detailed events surrounding 15th September 1940 (Battle of Britain Day), when PO Jones was shot down and baled out injured but, was able to return to flying duties sometime later. 

This highly unique, original painting is accompanied by a bound supporting document, briefly charting the history of L2122, PO Jones' career, copies of the letters and a copy of the original combat report, all of which not only make fascinating reading but, are also a very poignant record and first hand account of a significant day in history.

The stretched canvas measures an impressive 100x50cm. The canvas is supplied unframed, ready for you to frame in a style to suit your own choice.
