"WELCOMING RESPITE" – THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN, AUGUST 1940


Issued with the first edition Battle of Britain Commemorative Collection book.

It has been another hard day of ferocious air combat over southern England, but at long last the young pilots of 603 Squadron can take a short, yet welcome respite from the heavy fighting. Soon however, the roar of Merlin engines will fill the air again as another deadly Luftwaffe raid threatens.

Robert Taylor’s latest masterpiece, beautifully crafted using a subtle combination of delicate graphite skillfully interwoven with subtle hues of the artist’s finest oil paint, rekindles the poignancy of one such moment in this, the most famous of all air battles in history.
