Product Description


Giclee Edition of 500 - Artist Signed: $125
Size 22" x 16"

In order to protect the Atlantic convoys during WWII from the long range German bombers, it was necessary to take Hawker Hurricanes along with them, mounted on a rocket powered catapult assembled on the bow of one several of the merchant ships. When there was a threat from the enemy, the Hurricane was launched to attack the enemy, and then ditched in the sea. The pilot would then be rescued by one of the ships. Interestingly, the rail was set at an angle to the centreline of the ship to ensure the Hurricane was not run over by the ship if the launch failed.

Hurricanes were of course rapidly becoming overtaken by the Spitfire at this stage of the war and were in fact quite disposable.
