Artist's Description

The painting is a combination of water colors, and ink on paper.

Capt. Philip Fletcher Fullard (27 May 1897 – 24 April 1984), was an English First World War flying ace, one of the most successful fighter pilots of the Royal Flying Corps, with a reputation as a superb combat leader. With 40 confirmed victories, he was the top scoring UK ace flying Nieuports, and overall the 6th highest scoring British pilot, and the 2nd highest to survive the war.
The outstanding feature of Captain Fullard’s record is the few casualties his flight has suffered. For three months, he worked with the same flight of six pilots without a casualty, and in that time they brought down more enemy machines than any other flight in France. His achievements were widely known among the flying men at the front – the French called him “The English Ace.”

He was awarded the Distinguished Service Order, Military Cross & Bar, the Air Force Cross, and the Croix de guerre (Belgium).
