about this piece
September 1940, and Mk1 Spitfires from 19 Sqn have been ordered south to engage heavily escorted Luftwaffe bomber formations heading for the Thames Estuary and London. Following intense fighting the SpitfiresÆ ammunition is expended, and low on fuel the squadron makes a hurried landing at a forward airfield to replenish empty tanks and re-arm. Within minutes they will be airborne again.

Together with the uninviting waters of the Channel, the RAF were the only thing stopping an invasion by HitlerÆs all-conquering Panzers. Completely outnumbered Fighter Command had been forced to go head to head with the most powerful air force in the world and, by the end of October, through raw courage and determination were victorious.

Signatures May Vary by Edition

Together with the artist every print is personally signed by three famous Battle of Britain fighter pilots:

Sqn Ldr TONY IVESON DFC u Spitfires / 616 Sqn
Wg Cdr TERENCE KANE u Spitfires / 234 Sqn
Wg Cdr TOM NEIL DFC* AFC u Hurricanes / 249 Sqn

In addition to the three fighter pilots who have signed the Limited Edition, each print in the CollectorÆs Edition has been personally autographed by a further three Battle of Britain veterans:

Wg Cdr æTIMÆ ELKINGTON u Hurricanes / 1 Sqn
Flt Lt 'BOB' HUGHES DFC AE u Bleinhems / 23 Sqn
Sqn Ldr NIGEL ROSE u Spitfires / 602 Sqn


Only fifteen of these outstanding TEN SIGNATURE Tribute Remarques will be issued. With all the signatures of the CollectorÆs Edition, each print will have an original pencil remarque, hand-crafted to order by the artist in the lower margin below the image. The print is then individually conservation matted to include the original pencil signatures of a further four highly decorated Battle of Britain fighter pilots.


Each double-size remarque drawing will be individually created on a separate sheet of buff paper in RichardÆs trademark pencil and paint combination and set into the conservation matting along with the four additional pilot signatures:

Gp Capt BILLY DRAKE DSO DFC* u Hurricanes / 213 Sqn Wg Cdr VIVIAN SNELL u Hurricanes / 103 & 501 Sqn
Flt Lt RICHARD JONES u Spitfires / 64 & 19 Sqn
Sqn Ldr JOCELYN MILLARD u Hurricanes / 1 Sqn
