Channel Patrol

Channel Patrol by Stephen Brown - original

Spitfire Mk 1as of 19 Squadron during a Channel patrol in September 1940. Although seemingly alone in the sky the young pilots have no time to admire the cliffs of Beachy Head below them. They must remain constantly vigilant or risk being caught off guard by Luftwaffe fighters. The Battle of Britain is drawing to a close and 19 Squadron have more than played their part in the struggle for control of the country’s skies. Based at Duxford and later Fowlmere, 19 Squadron fought with distinction during a sustained period of almost continuous front line combat.
