Fields Of Glory by Richard Taylor

WE SHALL NOT FORGET - RELEASED FOR REMEMBRANCE DAY AND VETERANS DAY



With the Battle of Britain reaching its climax, Mk.Ia Spitfires from 92 Squadron return to their new base at Biggin Hill in early September 1940. As if in tribute to fallen comrades, a bright swathe of second-flowering corn poppies greet their thunderous arrival.

This superb cameo painting by Richard Taylor serves as a tribute to all those who fought for the Allied forces during WWII.
