Channel Patrol by Stephen Brown - Original Painting


Original oil painting on high quality stretched canvas featuring Spitfire Mk 1as of 19 Squadron during a Channel patrol in September 1940. Although seemingly alone in the sky the young pilots have no time to admire the cliffs of Beachy Head below them. They must remain constantly vigilant or risk being caught off guard by Luftwaffe fighters. The Battle of Britain is drawing to a close and 19 Squadron have more than played their part in the struggle for control of the country's skies. Based at Duxford and later Fowlmere, 19 Squadron fought with distinction during a sustained period of almost continuous front line combat.

The canvas is signed on the back in permanent ink by the following distinguished Spitfire pilots:
Geoffrey Wellum DFC
Famous Battle of Britain Spitfire pilot and best selling author.
Peter Ayherst DFC
Spitfire Ace, 9 victories, flew from start to finish throughout the war; took part in the Battle of France, Battle of Britain, D-Day and North Africa amongst others. First into combat against the Me109. He even taught the famous Johnny Johnson to fly. After the war he became a test pilot working alongside Alex Henshaw.~
Peter Twiss OBE, DSC and Bar
War time combat pilot but perhaps best known for his breaking of the world speed record whilst flying the Fairey Delta 2 aircraft in 1956. Prior to this he flew Spitfires, Fulmars and Hawker Hurricanes from catapult ships. In 1942 he flew as part of the Malta convoys escort. Also took part in Operation Torch.
Bob Large DFC
Spitfire pilot and later Lysander pilot with the Special Operation Executive.
