COASTAL PATROL

610 Squadron was a Unit with a history going back to the First World War and was one of the first to be re-equipped with the Supermarine Spitfire in time to take part in the air battles over the Dunkirk pocket in an attempt to keep Luftwaffe aircraft away from the British and French troops trapped on the beaches.

As the Battle of Britain got underway 610 Squadron flying from Biggin Hill was in the thick of the fighting - three or more sorties a day were not uncommon and the pilots were constantly fighting fatigue. In tribute to the Spitfire pilots of 610 Squadron Richard portrays them flying a low defensive patrol over the famous white cliffs during August of 1940 - the height of the Battle of Britain.

The Print is signed by Artist Richard Taylor and THREE famous Battle of Britain Spitfire pilots:-

Squadron Leader Percival H. BEAKE DFC - 64 Squadron

Flight Lt. Willian J. CORBIN DFC - 610 Squadron

Flight Lt. Trevor GRAY - 64 Squadron

The Print measures 31x31 Inches and comes with the Certificate of Authenticity
