“The Few”, 18X36″, oil. Copyright Steve Anderson ASAA 2017

In the Fall of 1940, Major Helmut Wick was the youngest Geschwaderkommodore in the Luftwaffe. On 28 November, Wick bags a Spitfire for his 56th kill. Momentarily distracted, he flies across the path of 12 victory ace Flight Lieutenant John Dundas of 609 Squadron. With a short burst Dundas downs Wick. Over the RT, Dundas was heard to say, “I got a 109, whoopee!” Those were his last words. Wick’s wingman, Rudolf Pflanz, shot down Dundas. Wick was seen to have bailed out, and the Spitfire went into the sea with the pilot still inside. Neither man was ever found.

Private collection.
