317 'Polish' Squadron Spitfires by 

Spitfire Series

317 Polish Squadron

“Dover – angels twenty – buster” – in response to the Controller’s call 317 ’Polish’ Squadron claw their way up through the murk to an interception during their spell of duty on Home Counties defence in 1942. The section of Spits is thus directed to be overhead Dover at 20,000ft as fast as possible, so to be in position to deal with an incoming Luftwaffe raid picked up on radar. In 1942 terse semi-coded commands were the norm in Control/aircrew communications and designed to get the maximum information to the pilots with the least chance of error or ambiguity – particularly important with the large number of ‘foreign’ aircrew now operating up to Squadron strength.

The prints available here are the product of a family team (father & two sons) with many years of photographic experience the team is dedicated to producing high quality images especially of classic warbird aircraft.

The Warbird prints gallery contain composite images using many of the above aircraft photographs, often combined with other aircraft, and merged with a background and skyscape sympathetic to the original operational mode of the prototypes.
