Luftwaffe Fighter Pilot Series

 

“Here is my selection of Luftwaffe Fighter Pilots chosen for your collection. They all flew under my command in WWII and are all willing to contribute to your autograph collection. I admire your foresight and am happy to contribute myself”

Generalleutnant Adolf Galland - May, 1984


 


Standard Edition


"Major Fritz Losigkeit Knights Cross"

In May 1940 Losigkeit was in command of 2./JG 26 based at Audembert on the Channel Coast. Piloting the Me109 he flew over 100 missions during the Battle of Britain and, like the RAF pilots he flew against, often flying up to five missions per day.

Five years later, after 750 operational missions in both the East and Western theatres, in 1945 Fritz Losigkeit was still in action. Now in command of JG 77 in Czechoslovakia, he was detailed to form a special unit from all available aircraft types for ground attack operations against the advancing allied armies. Concurrently JG 77 took part in fighter interceptions of bomber forces defended by powerful forces of long-range fighters. Losigkeit recalls the aerial battles were ferocious.

 

 

The Print:

Bandits Out Of The Sun by Darryl Legg

In the Spring of 1940 the crack German fighter wings were deployed all along the coast of Northern France, their pilots included some of the biggest names in the Luftwaffe, Adolf Galland, Johannes Steinhoff, Hannes Trautloft, Herbert Ihlefeld, Julius Meimberg, and Fritz Losigkeit, all of whom were to become leading aces. Darryl Legg captures the menacing sight of a ‘Rotte’ of Messerschmitt Me109s from JG-51 making an attack as they dive at full power out of the sun. This dramatic painting provides a superb impression of the outstanding Me109 in full flight.

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.
