Eismeer Patrol by Anthony Saunders signed by Tirpitz and Luftwaffe Veterans
The Tirpitz 11 March 1943. On the morning of 11 March 1943, Fw190s from IV. /JG5 left their base to escort the mighty battleship Tirpitz and a screening fleet of escort destroyers and torpedo boats, at the start of a voyage north to Bogen Bay during Operation Rostock, designed to escape the increasingly frequent British bombing raids. Tirpitz would leave southern Norway to join an impressive German naval battle fleet gathering near Narvik, one of the largest German naval bases in Norway. Together with the Scharnhorst , the heavy cruiser Lützow and the light cruiser Nürnberg , they would pose a grave threat to the Arctic convoys. Tirpitz was the flagship of the German Kriegsmarine. After repeated attempts to sink her she was eventually destroyed by Lancaster Bombers of 617 and 9 Squadrons at her anchorage in. On 12 November 1944. This stunning print has been hand numbered and signed by artist as well as one of the few survivors rescued from the upturned hull of the Tirpitz when she was sunk, along with an escort pilot who was. One the last to fly over the sinking vessel.

Midway, The Attack on the Sry by Anthony Saunders signed by Pacific veterans
MIDWAY – THE ATTACK ON THE SRY. SBD pilots pull out of their death-defying dives having delivered their 1000lb bombs perfectly on target with three direct hits on the Japanese carrier Sry. The Sry is doomed, and these few courageous US Navy pilots have changed the course of history. Thursday 4 June 1942, and Admiral Yamamotos plan to draw what remained of the US Pacific fleet into battle was going well. That morning, before dawn, he had launched over a hundred aircraft to pound Midways power plants and oil installations, and the attack had been successful. By 10.20 the noise on the carriers packed flight decks reached a crescendo as the pilots ran up their engines whilst the Sry turned slowly into the wind ready to launch. Few were watching the sky above. They failed to spot the SBD Dauntless dive-bombers from the USS Yorktown gathering high overhead. No one noticed as the battle-hardened pilots of VB-3 banked their SBDs and, swooping like hawks on their prey, dived on the carrier below. THE SIGNATURES The Battle of Midway in June 1942 ranks as the most pivotal naval victory of World War II and alongside the artist Anthony Saunders, this historic print is personally autographed by two veterans who took part in that epic encounter.
