Thanks Blacksheep!

This was a major undertaking. Lots of interesting BoB art to see. Many of the images were new to me.

There is certainly even more BoB art that does not have a specific date attached. Amazing!

This thread has been a mammoth effort Blacksheep and an important one in understanding the scope and perspective of the BOB and that of our artists.

Your research and diligence are much appreciated.

A most valuable contribution to eHangar. :award_1

Duel by Geoff Nutkins

Pilot Officer Harold "Birdy" Bird-Wilson of No 17 Squadron in combat with Oberleutnant Hasso von Perthes of 3./LG 2, 31st August 1940. Von Perthes baled out and was captured at Oxted, Surrey. His Me 109 crashed at Crowhurst.

During the Battle of Britain, "Birdy" Bird-Wilson scored two victories and shared several others whilst flying this Hurricane (P3878, YB-W). But on 24th September 1940, he was shot down by the renowned Luftwaffe ace, Adolf Galland. "Birdy" baled out injured and his Hurricane crashed into the Thames Estuary.

Sorry, but Von Perthes was shot down by polish pilot Mirosław Ferić from 303 squadron. He used only 20 bullets from every gun, and he shot from distance 70 yards
