The sight of the iconic White cliffs of Dover and fellow Hawker Hurricane aircraft from his own Squadron make a welcome sight for an RAF pilot returning from a challengingly tight spot in a dogfight over the English Channel, during the Battle of Britain in World War 2.
The painting shows Sq/L. C. W. Williams rejoining Sgt. W. J. Etherington, his No. 2, and other aircraft of his own (No. 17) Squadron on the 18th August 1940. Just moments before, during an attack on enemy bombers, Williams was separated from his comrades and under attack from 4 enemy fighters, but with great skill, he was able to throw them off with a series of hectic turns down to sea level.
Atop the cliffs can be seen the masts of the Swingate radar station at Dover. The radar station was part of the important ‘Chain Home’ radar system that played such a crucial role in winning the Battle of Britain.
Original aviation oil painting finished in high quality varnish, delivered well wrapped in a presentation box and with a certificate of authenticity.
