During the summer of 1940, Britain endured numerous raids by squadrons of bombers of the German Luftwaffe. Whilst it is the Spitfire that is credited with turning the tide in the Battle of Britain, the facts are that it was the Hurricane that was responsible for shooting down the greatest number of enemy aircraft.
In one typical raid on September 15th, over 100 Heinkel He 111 and Dornier bombers swarmed over London-s docklands and east end, where to their surprise they encountered 50 squadrons of Hurricanes and Spitfires. Some of the raiders made it back to France, but many came down before reaching our southern coastline.
The Spitfire was designed by Reginald J Mitchell and the combination of the classic elliptical wing and the powerful Merlin engine, provided legendary manoeuvrability and speed. The Hurricane however, proved to be the workhorse of Fighter Command. Designed by Sir Sydney Camm, it boasted a robust construction that provided a stable gun platform and an ability to sustain a very large amount of battle damage.#
Nicolas Trudgian was born in 1959 and grew up in Plymouth; a vibrant place for a youngster where there was always something to see, be it planes and trains, aircraft carriers and submarines or tanks and helicopters.
Nicolas's artistic skill came from his father, a very skilled amateur, who encouraged him to produce the drawings and inevitably, transport and military subjects loomed from each page. The backgrounds to his aviation prints are for many collectors the real attraction, as in many cases his pictures would be satisfying even if the aeroplanes were removed. From the white cliffs of Dover to the sands of North Africa there are endless opportunities for backdrops to his aviation landscapes.
Since 1991 Nicolas has lived in the Cotswold Hills in Gloucestershire in a house built in the corner of what was once a Battle of Britain airfield
