GLORIOUS SUMMER
by Robert Taylor

Robert Taylor's magnificent study of the legendary Hurricane captures wonderfully the spirit of that cataclysmic aerial conflict fought so long ago. Nearest, young Pilot Officer Geoffrey Page, later to become one of the RAF's most highly decorated fighter Aces, powers his Mk I Hurricane over the country lane at the edge of the airfield, as he and his fellow No 56 Squadron pilots make their third scramble of the day.

The Aces Edition is signed by SIX leading RAF Aces who flew Hurricanes in the Battle of Britain. In addition, the Millennium Proofs are signed by THIRTEEN additional Battle of Britain pilots, and two Beaufighter pilots have signed the companion drawing 'Hunters of the Night'- making a total of TWENTY ONE outstanding Battle of Britain signatures.
