Royal Air Force Fighter Pilot Series

“How you have managed to collect so many autographs from fighter pilots of the WWII era I have no idea. I didn’t think any of them would sit still long enough to sign their names, but I am honoured to be included in such illustrious company!”

Group Captain Brian Kingcome, DSO, DFC* March, 1984


 


Special Edition:

 

"Wing Commander Laddie Lucas DSO, DFC & Wing Commander Alan Deere DSO, DFC**"

Two highly decorated Spitfire pilots, Al Deere being recognized as one of the RAF’s most tenacious fighter pilots. Laddie Lucas, related to Douglas Bader, Flew Spitfires in Europe and was one of Malta’s great wing leaders.

Top scoring fighter pilot from New Zealand, Al Deere was known throughout the RAF for his exploits in the Spitfire. He survived an incredible 8 bail-outs and by the end of the Battle of Britain had destroyed 11 enemy aircraft. Laddie Lucas commanded 249 Sqn’s Spitfires in Malta, the RAF’s top-scoring squadron at the height of the island’s battle.

 

The Print:

Achtung Spitfire! by Darryl Legg

The greatest defensive fighter ever built, and arguably the most beautiful, its sleek lines wonderfully captured by the outstanding aviation artist Darryl Legg who has set a typical scene from 1941 with Spitfires of No.616 Squadron, of the famous Tangmere Wing, as they cross the English Channel, heading towards the French coast on another sortie to harass and engage the Luftwaffe.

BACKGROUND, PROVENANCE & AUTHENTICITY

Each autograph was personally collected in the early 1980s by Mr Pat Barnard, who had founded the Military Gallery during the 1970's. These original signatures formed part of a project supported by Group Captain Sir Douglas Bader, Group Captain Leonard Cheshire VC, Air Vice Marshal Johnnie Johnson, Brigadier General Robin Olds and General Adolf Galland, all of whom advised and helped Mr Barnard collect the signatures.

Every Autograph (signature) offered by the publisher with this series of "Ensembles" is guaranteed to be original and genuine. Our reputation depends upon our integrity: We do not buy signatures from outside sources where it is often difficult to ascertain authenticity. We have the undisputed provenance for each signature which means that every Certificate of Authenticity supplied by the publisher is as genuine as the signatures it supports.

The Certificate of Authenticity supplied with each original autograph is authorised by the publisher, therefore making the Certificate a valuable document in itself. To counter the proliferation of forged signatures in the market today, and to guarantee the genuine nature of your investment, please keep your Certificate safe and secure. It will ensure there can never be any doubt as to the value of your collection in years to come.
