Signed on the back of the canvas by legendary Spitfire pilots:
Flt. Lt. Geoffrey Wellum DFC; Air Commodore Pete Brothers CBE,DSO, DFC & Bar, Wing Commander Paddy Barthropp DFC, AFC, Air Commodore EW Wright CBE, DFC, DFM, Alex Henshaw MBE. An outstanding of an actual event that happened in the Battle of Britain, signed by all these remarkable men.

Geoffrey Wellum joins combat head-on with a Dornier during the Battle of Britain. He was part of a small group of 10 spitfires from Biggin Hill facing 150 plus enemy bombers and fighters. Other friendly fighters joined battle but the defenders were still vastly out numbered, a scene repeated on many occasions in the summer of 1940. On this particular day Geoff scored a Heinkel destroyed, together with a Dornier as a probable.
