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


 


Special Distinguished Flying Cross Edition:

 

"Wing Commander Bob Stanford-Tuck DSO, DFC** & Wing Commander Don Kingaby DSO*, DFC, DFM**"

With no fewer that NINE awards for gallantry, these two fighter pilots are among the most decorated of the war. Stanford-Tuck took part in all the air fighting over Dunkirk, the large air battles over the Channel, and throughout the Battle of Britain. An exceptional pilot, aggressive, and whether leading a flight, squadron, or wing, did so with great courage and panache. Stanford-Tuck flew his first aerial combat over Northern France in May 1940 with 92 Squadron, destroying an Me109 in the morning, and two Me 110’s in the afternoon. By the end of the Battle of Britain he was a legend.

With 92 Sqn Don Kingaby flew Spitfires in the Battle of Britain and by November 1940 had shot down 9 enemy aircraft. He became one of WWII’s most successful and highly decorated RAF fighter aces with a final score of 23 credited victories, eight ‘probables’ and 16 damaged. He was the first and only RAF fighter pilot to be awarded three DFM medals for gallantry.

 


The Print:

Battle of Britain Spitfires 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 the Battle of Britain with Spitfires of No.66 Squadron intercepting Dornier bombers as they cross the English coast, headed for London during the final stages of the Battle.

 


The Medal:

To represent one of the RAF gallantry decorations each one of these pilots received during World War Two, a miniature replica Distinguished Flying Cross has been expertly mounted into the display.

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.
