SPITFIRE SCRAMBLE by RICHARD TAYLOR

95 Limited Edition $125 40 Collector’s Edition $140 15 Artist Proof $225 15 Remarques $545 10 Double Remarques $875

Richard’s exquisite cameo depicts a typical daily scene at Westhampnett, a satellite of nearby sector station Tangmere, as Flight Lieutenant ‘Mickey’ Mount leads the final section of 602 Squadron Spitfires away from the base in a frantic scramble to intercept another large Luftwaffe force heading towards the Royal Navy’s main base at Portsmouth and radar stations on the Isle of Wight in August 1940.

To add real collector status to the edition, each print bears the original signature of the pilot who had been with his squadron longer and flown more operational sorties during the Battle of Britain than anyone else.

The Limited Edition

Along with artist Richard Taylor, every print carries the original signature of the following famous Battle of Britain Spitfire pilot:

Wg Cdr JOHN FREEBORN DFC*

Flying Spitfires with 74 Sqn during the battle, he achieved seven victories to become a Battle of Britain Ace for which he was awarded the DFC.

95 Limited Edition $125

The Collector’s Edition & Artist Proof Portfolios

These exclusive portfolios include a numbered copy of the veteran-signed print ‘Spitfire Scramble’ which is accompanied by a matching-numbered copy of the book ‘The RAF Battle of Britain Fighter Pilot’s Kitbag’ by historian Mark Hillier.

Each portfolio is then complete with a specially-created commemorative signature ensemble which includes the original pencil autograph of a famous Battle of Britain fighter pilot:

Gp Capt PETER TOWNSEND CVO DSO DFC

As Commanding Officer of 85 Sqn on Hurricanes, he was considered one of the most inspirational fighter leaders of the Battle of Britain.

40 Collector’s Edition $140 15 Artist Proof $225

The Remarque Editions

With all components of the Collector’s Edition, each print in these highly-restricted editions will be returned to Richard’s studio and further enhanced with an original pencil Remarque, hand drawn in the border of the print.

Richard is regarded as one of the most gifted pencil artists in the industry and his original works are hugely sought after. It’s therefore no surprise that his Remarque editions are in such high demand.



Why not commission your own personal Remarque drawing?

Remarques are hand crafted to order so if you have a special request, such as a particular scene or specific aircraft markings, please just ask and we’ll do our best to accommodate.
