The scene is of a Messerschmitt fighter, also known as the 'Emil', this BF109E-3, bearing the pik-as (Ace of Spades) of Jagdgeschwader 53, takes evasive action against a pursuing Spitfire, sweeping low over the stubble of a harvested field, its propeller wash throwing up clouds of dust and chaff.

Remarkable limited Litho print of a painting by renouned war artist, William Perring that captures perfectly two worlds juxtaposing each other.

 

One a calm hazy sunny day with workers toiling in fields while above their heads high in the sky, a world of chaos, violence and death as the young heroes of the RAF fight for the freedom of England against Hitler's notoriously ruthless air force.

And in an instant, the two worlds merge as the tranquil scene becomes a maelstrom of noise and gunfire as the two aircraft engage one another over the English countryside.

STANDARD TECHNICAL TRAINING NOTES Flight Mechanics (engine) manual

RAF Air Publication 3042

March 1944 Issued by the Air Ministry

Issued to Squadron Leader L Edmunds

Original RAF Standard Technical Training Notes from 1944, amazing authetic document from World War Two would have been used to train the ground crews responsible for keeping Spitfires and Hurricanes in fighting order and airborne in the air war against Nazi Germany in the 1940s.

Immense technical detail about tools used in the task of aircraft engine maintenance, illustrations and photos of processes involved in maintaining the Pegasus engine which powered the Fairey Swordfish, Vickers Wellington, and Merlin engines which powered the Bristol Beau fighter II, Boulton Paul Defiant II, Handley Page Halifax II and V, Hawker Hurricane II and IV, and Avro Lancaster I and III

Condition: In very good condition considering its over 70 years old, no foxing on pages, little ageing showing on a few, one illustration page has a bit of a ragged edge. But a good clean copy that is a piece of fine military history.
