Issued as a special edition to commemorate the
60th anniversary of both the Spitfire and Hurricane

"HEIGHT OF THE BATTLE "
by Robert Taylor
Print size: 23 x 31ins.

By mid-afternoon on Wednesday 11th September, 1940
German bomber formations were plotted flying up the
Thames Estuary towards London. To deal with the imminent
raid Fighter Command scrambled nine squadrons to make
the intercept. As the Luftwaffe bombers approached the docklands
east of London, sixty Spitfires and Hurricanes fell upon them
and a pitched battle ensued. Leading No. 74 'Tiger' Squadron,
'Sailor' Malan, ignored the fighter cover and tackled the bombers,
the Spitfires ripping into the Heinkel IIIs in an effective beam attack.
Having made one diving attack and zoomed back above the
raiding Heinkel IIIs, the fighters peel off for a second attack,
Malan already winging over with Stephen on his heels.
Below Hurricane Mark Is of 17 and 56 Squadrons
have joined the turbulent fray.

Each print is signed by the artist and issued with a
