Battle of Britain Trilogy Series - Hawker Hurricane Mk1 edition

 

“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

The Mk I Hawker Hurricane saw plenty of action in the Battle of France, where many of its pilots scored their first victories. Being a few years older than the Spitfire, more Hurricanes were operational at the start of the Battle of Britain, the type making up the backbone of Fighter Command’s operational squadrons. Though powered by the same Merlin engine it was a little slower than the Spitfire, but a steadier gun platform and could out-turn both the Spitfire and the Luftwaffe’s Me109.
Hurricane pilots destroyed two thirds of all the Luftwaffe aircraft shot down during the Battle of Britain, could take more punishment and survive than most other fighters, its rugged construction often getting a badly damaged aircraft and its pilot safely home.

This new Ensemble commemorates the vital part played in the Battle of Britain by the Mk I Hurricane, and the determination and bravery of the pilots that flew it in combat. The highly accurate rendition by prominent aviation artist Darryl Legg is triple mounted with gold plated RAF pilots wings and carries the original signatures of three of the greatest Battle of Britain pilots ever to fly the Hurricane in combat:


Air Commodore Pete Brothers, DSO, DFC*
Air Commodore Pat Jamieson, DSO, DFC*
Air Marshal Sir Denis Crowley-Milling, DSO, DFC*

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.
