Closing The Gap (The Normandy Veterans Edition)
Signed Limited Edition Print - World War II - Robert Taylor
Typhoon Mk1b fighter-bombers of 247 Squadron exit the target area near Falaise at full throttle, wreaking devastation with their powerful rockets as fuel and ammunition from the retreating German column explode with shattering force. The Typhoons will hurtle back to base to re-arm and hastily re-fuel, ready for yet another withering strike on the encircled Wehrmacht columns.
This impressive edition commemorates both the British Air and Land Forces who fought so valiantly in the gruelling Battle of Normandy. Joining the ten RAF fighter pilots on the Typhoon Edition, each print is additionally signed by ten British Army veterans who fought in the Normandy breakout, making a total of TWENTY signatures in this edition.
