Robert Taylor's evocative image portraying the moment that earned a young brave RAF pilot the highest bravery award, the Victoria Cross.

 

On August 16th 1940, Flight Lieutenant James Nicolson flying his 249 Squadron Hurricane over the Solent near Southampton, engaged several Luftwaffe Me110's who were attacking the docks and shipping.

Although his aircraft was already on fire from a previous engagement, he disregarded his own safety and pressed home another successful attack on the invaders before baling out.

Sadly Flt Lt Nicolson died before the end of the war in an accident in South East Asia whilst serving in Burma.

 

This original edition, one of 1500 produced, was personally signed by one of the survivors of the B24 Liberator which crashed, May 2nd 1945, and of which Flt Lt Nicolson was a passenger.

 

Sergeant Eric Kightly - Air Gunner

 

Overall print size: 20" x 24"

Edition Size: 1500

Published: 1984

 

IMPORTANT NOTE:

We are delighted to have acquired this historical and rare edition from a private archive. The overall condition of the print is very good, considering its age. There has been no fading of the main image due to long term storage out of sunlight. There are some very faint marks on the lower edge and corners of the outer white border which may have occurred from long duration sitting in a browser. This was an early release with a restricted edition published, therefore the artist Robert Taylor has not signed it. This was quite common during the 1980's period of releases.
