A fabulous, possibly unique, example of this famous print, from one of the signing events held by the Military Gallery or similar, in the 1990s/early 2000s. As well as being hand-signed by much-admired aviation artist Gerald Coulson, this limited edition print is also hand-signed by 15 Battle of Britain pilots/airmen, including at least two Luftwaffe pilots. Rather than naming them all individually, we are showing high-res images of the signatures (many with squadron numbers alongside). Provenance: from a single private collection of multi-signed aviation prints.The collection was accompanied by receipts made out in the name of the same collector, and a few came with letters from the artists, brochures etc. If any such documentation is related to this print, we will include a copy for its new owner.
