Freedom - Aviation Art by Neil Hipkiss Aviation Artist

Painting Depiction

The Painting depicts a peaceful scene of a solitary Spitfire flying over the estuaries of southeast England, alone and free in a sunlit sky. The aircraft featured is a MkVB Spitfire of 610 Sqn., which was based at Ludham in the summer of 1942 and was briefly the personal aircraft of Flight Commander Denis Crowley-Milling following his return to the unit after spending some twelve months evading capture in occupied Europe. He survived the war and became a permanent commissioned officer in the Royal Air Force with a long and distinguished career.

Counter-signed Remarque Edition: by Squadron Leader B.A. 'Jimmy' James, MC.

Another pilot involved in a determined quest for freedom, 'Jimmy' James, survivor of the Great Escape from Stalag Luft III on the night of 24 March 1944.

The RAF Pilot was awarded the Military Cross for his part in the Great Escape

Jimmy James

His aircraft was shot down by heavy flack over the Dutch coast in 1940 and he was taken prisoner. From that moment on he could think of nothing but escaping from his German captors and returning home. In total he made 12 escape attempts, including the Great Escape. Eventually they sent him to the dreaded concentration camp of Sachsenhausen, where he escaped from there too. 'Jimmy' James was, without doubt, the greatest escaper and an inspiration in this fight for freedom
