*** PLEASE NOTE THE SPECIAL PRICE IF PURCHASED WITH HOMEWARD BOUND***
On the 9th September 1940. Number 92 Squadron was thrown into the Battle of Britain. They had fought bravely during the evacuation from Dunkirk, and after a spell on convoy patrol, they were thrust into the desperate climax of the greatest air battle in history.
Flying Spitfires from Biggin Hill, they immediately went into action attacking massive Luftwaffe bomber
formations and their escorting MelO9s. Southern England was under severe threat, but 92 Squadrons impact was immediate: during the next four months, its young pilots brought down no fewer than 127 enemy aircraft.
Anthony Saunders new painting High Summer, the second canvas in his new Battle of Britain Portfolio, portrays Spitfires from 92 Squadron as they
successfully engage a Me 109 over the harvested fields of southern England, in August 1940. The desperate action of aerial combat is beauti-fully captured in this compelling and accurate reconstruction of a famous fighter squadron at war.
