From a remote and windswept airfield 15 miles north-west of Murmansk in the freezing Arctic wastelands, a small group of RAF Hurricane pilots held the Luftwaffe at bay. Richard Taylor’s evocative scene remembers the ‘forgotten’ heroes of Force Benedict as Hurricane IIbs from 81 Squadron tangle with Luftwaffe Bf109s over snow-clad forests as they escort Russian bombers in October 1941.
Every print has been individually numbered and personally signed by the artist Richard Taylor and what are believed to be the last two surviving Hurricane pilots who flew in Russia with Force Benedict, together with an eminent Luftwaffe Fighter Ace who fought against the Hurricanes of 151 Wing over Murmansk:
- Wing Commander John 'Tim' Elkington
- Warrant Officer Eric Carter
- Hauptmann Karl-Fritz Schlossstein GCiG
