Royal Air Force Battle of Britain Series

 

“This is a remarkable collection of autographs of Hurricane and Spitfire pilots who took part in the Battle of Britain. I applaud the concept. It helps us never to forget those who flew and fought alongside us but never survived to tell the tale”

Group Captain Peter Townsend, DSO, DFC March 1984


 


Standard Edition

 

"Group Captain Bobby Oxspring DFC**, AFC"

Flew Spitfires from the early encounters over France, during the Battle of Britain, and throughout the remaining five years of the war. One of the great Spitfire Wing Leaders of WWII.

Bobby Oxspring flew Spitfires with 66 Sqn in the Battle of Britain based at Hawkinge and Gravesend and by autumn 1940 was an ace with nine enemy aircraft destroyed – four Heinkle 111’s, one Dornier 17, one Me110, and 3 Me109’s. Promoted to command 72 Sqn he participated in Operation TORCH, the invasion of North Africa before returning to UK to command 24 Wing, adding an Fw190 and four buzz-bombs to his tally.

 

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.
