Battle of Britain Trilogy Series - Supermarine Spitfire 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 Spitfire was, and still is, an icon of aviation history. In 1940 it came to symbolise the fighting spirit of a nation when control of its skies was the last remaining barrier to enemy invasion. Standing alone against the assembled might of German Forces, only the devil-may-care courage and sheer determination of the RAF’s young pilots, stood between Hermann Goering and his mighty Luftwaffe.

When the Battle of Britain began in the summer of 1940, although it was the Hurricane squadrons that bore the brunt of the fighting, it was the Spitfire that fired the nation’s imagination. Arguably the greatest defensive fighter ever built, this legendary little fighter, revered by its pilots and feared by it foes, earned a place in aviation folklore like no other aircraft before it or since.

This new Ensemble pays homage to the Spitfire Mk I and the dashing young pilots that flew it in combat in the Battle of Britain. 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 Spitfire in combat:

 

Air Commodore Alan Deere, DSO, DFC*
Wing Commander Bob Stanford-Tuck, 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.
