New Hurricane print WITH ORIGINAL FABRIC!
A rare chance to own a genuine piece of Battle of Britain Hurricane fabric.
This is a unique opportunity to purchase a genuine piece of Battle of Britain history! I painted this painting for the live televised recovery of Hurricane P3966 back in March 2019. With all the recovered parts now cleaned and identified, there were the usual bits and pieces left over, including a ragged section of fabric from the fuselage. Rather than leave it to gather dust in storage somewhere, it was decided to cut the fabric into smaller pieces that could then be framed with a print of the painting. This exciting concept took many months to organise but is finally available to purchase.
The print shows Pilot Officer John 'Paddy' Hemingway of 85 Squadron baling out of his crippled Hurricane P3966 on the afternoon of 26th August 1940.
Both pilot and Hurricane came down over the Pitsea Marshes on the north bank of the Thames Estuary. At the time of writing, 'Paddy' Hemingway is now the last known member of The Few still alive and well.
Each print comes with a numbered 16 page A5 full colour booklet detailing the history of the aircraft, pilot and combat in which it was shot down. It also details the recovery of the aircraft in 2019.
Each print also comes with a small original section of fabric from the fuselage of Hurricane P3966 that had been buried in the ground for nearly 80 years.
