Portfolio Sets

Some of Anthony Saunders prints are issued as a portfolio pair. This means that if you purchase both prints at the same time, not only is there a saving on the individual print price, but they are issued usually with matching edition numbers. Some prints that were originaly issued as a portfolio pair have sold out so only one of the pair may now be available. If this is the case the print is listed on it's own.

High Summer

Homeward Bound

Released as the companion to HIGH SUMMER in the Battle of Britain Portfolio, Anthony Saunders’ compelling new painting brings to life a typical cameo from those long and arduous aerial contests during the Battle of Britain; an Me109 from JG-26 has taken a hit during the fighting, the engine is overheating, and beginning to trail smoke. But the Squadron Commander, the legendary Adolf Galland, closes in to escort the stricken fighter back across the Channel. Crossing the iconic white cliffs of Dover, the drama, depicted in this new Battle of Britain Portfolio series, has time to run.

Approach to The Mohne Dam

Operation Chastise

Anthony Saunders’ painting, Approach to the Möhne Dam, already hailed as a masterpiece of aviation art and one of the most authentic interpretations of events yet created, captures the moment when the fate of the Mohne dam was sealed.

Following three attempts and the tragic loss of one aircraft the dam still held; it is now the turn of Flight Lieutenant David Maltby at the controls of Lancaster AJ-J to press home his attack. With Mick Martin drawing the enemy’s fire to port and Guy Gibson to starboard, Maltby holds his aircraft steady and true as bomb aimer John Fort releases their Upkeep mine.

The time was 00.49hrs on the morning of 17 May 1943 and the mine bounced to perfection, hit the target, sank, and detonated against the already damaged stone wall. Immeasurable pressure forced water through the groaning, already cracking blocks of granite until the dam could stand no more. The wall shuddered and then surrendered. ‘There was a breach 100yds across,’ Gibson wrote later, ‘and the water, looking like stirred porridge in the moonlight, was gushing out and rolling into the Ruhr valley....’

Commemorating the 75th Anniversary, the print has been personally signed by veterans who helped create the Dambusters legend. This fitting tribute to one of the most famous missions in the history of aerial warfare creates a historic collector’s item for aviation art enthusiasts and history buffs alike.

THE SIGNATURES

To commemorate the 75th Anniversary of Operation Chastise – one of the most audacious air raids of WWII – each print is personally signed by two veterans who were directly involved in the raid:

Squadron Leader GEORGE ‘JOHNNY’ JOHNSON MBE DFM RAF
Bomb-aimer on Lancaster AJ-T that attacked the Sorpe Dam, scoring a direct hit.

Dr MARY STOPES-ROE
The daughter of Sir Barnes Wallis who, as a child, helped inspire her father to develop the Bouncing Bomb.

THE REMARQUE EDITIONS

A unique hand-drawn pencil Remarque is one of the best ways to own an original piece of art by Anthony Saunders. Widely acknowledged as one of the most gifted aviation artists of his generation, each of his delicately crafted pencil drawings is skilfully created to order in the lower margins of the print, and will be of a Lancaster relevant to the Dambuster Raid.

Beyond The Storm

The winter of 1944 / 45 had been one of the worst on record with temperatures plunging across the whole country, bringing with it ice, freezing fog and drifting snow. But the war had gone on oblivious to the weather, and by April 1945 the sunless, dreary skies that had cast their frosty shadow over much of north-west Europe were long gone and the end was finally in sight.

This reflected the feeling amongst most of Europe towards the war in general – the storm was finally passing. Shortages of fuel, pilots and spares meant that the Luftwaffe was on its last legs, putting up little serious opposition. By now, after escorting the heavy bombers to their targets, complete groups of P-51 Mustangs were sweeping the entire western Reich on the return trip, strafing anything hostile on the ground. On one such mission fifteen Fighter Groups had gone on a strafing spree attacking 40 airfields in eastern Bavaria and western Czechoslovakia, claiming a record number of 747 aircraft destroyed on the ground. There wasn’t much left for the P-51s to destroy.

Channel Storm

Anthony’s atmospheric painting depicts a definitive moment in late August 1940 as the Mk.I Spitfires of 610 Squadron, one of the units to bear the full brunt of the Luftwaffe’s attacks, scramble away from their base at Biggin Hill towards the Channel where yet another incoming Luftwaffe formation has been spotted. Combining great skill with thoughtful insight, Anthony beautifully portrays the elegant fighters, glinting in sunlight, racing towards the storm clouds gathering on the horizon. The peaceful harvest taking place in the fields below is in stark contrast to the perils that lie ahead.

Reproduced as a Limited Edition print to commemorate the 80th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain, each print carries the original signatures of highly-regarded RAF Fighter Pilots and Aces who flew during that long summer of 1940.

Checking Out

When the American Eighth Air Force arrived in England in 1942 they had a second enemy to battle besides the Luftwaffe – the English weather.

The mighty Eighth, the largest and most powerful air force in the world, were on many occasions almost paralyzed by the unpredictable and unexpected climate – much to the relief of the Luftwaffe. Many of the aircrew had trained in the sunny air of southern California and took time to adjust to the grey, dismal skies, and the rolling banks of cloud that gathered over England and the near continent.

Day Of Infamy

On the morning of Sunday 7 December 1941 the Japanese launched their infamous attack on Pearl Harbor. Surprise was complete; within a few terrifying minutes, bombs and torpedoes had damaged or destroyed much of the US Pacific Fleet peacefully at anchor, and almost all of the fighters on the ground. But as an Aichi D-3A bomber targets the battleship California, a lone P-40 has managed to get airborne in the chaos to engage the enemy.

COMMEMORATING THE 70th ANNIVERSARY OF THE ATTACK ON PEARL HARBOR

Seventy years ago the world stood open-mouthed in shock as it learnt of the infamous attack on Pearl Harbor. This dramatic new edition is released in tribute to all those that took part in the actions on December 7 1941.

Of the many thousand US soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen that witnessed the dreadful spectacle on December 7, just a handful remain with us today. The Military Gallery is therefore honored that two of these veterans, both of whom were in action on Battleship Row that fateful morning aboard the USS Tennessee, sister ship of the California, have personally signed each print, endorsing this dramatic edition.

Decisive Blow

Anthony Saunders’ superb painting depicts one of these raids, this time by bombers from KG77 as they head over the Medway Estuary, east of the City of London, in an attempt to attack the capital’s warehouses and docks. Among the many units defending the capital that day was 92 Squadron from Biggin Hill and Anthony portrays the Spitfire of Pilot Officer Geoffrey Wellum in his dramatic piece. With a deft flick of the rudder Wellum banks his fighter away to port seconds after sharing in the destruction of a Ju88. It was just one of more than 50 German aircraft destroyed by the RAF during the day.

Destination Tokyo

COMMEMORATING THE 75th ANNIVERSARY OF THE DOOLITTLE RAID - 18 APRIL 1942

The daylight raid on Tokyo, led by Lt Col James H. Doolittle on Sunday 18 April 1942, has rightfully entered the history books as one of the most daring and courageous operations of the Second World War. On that day, in mid ocean, Doolittle had launched his B-25 Mitchell bomber from the heaving, spray-soaked flight deck of an aircraft carrier, a deck too short to land on, and flown on to bomb Tokyo. He knew there would be no return to the USS Hornet, either for him or the 15 heavily- laden B-25s behind him, for this was a feat never before attempted, and for every crew member the mission was a one-way ticket. Yet, under the leadership of Jimmy Doolittle, they all dared to survive.

The mission for the 16 bombers was to bomb industrial targets in Tokyo and surrounding areas, to slow production of strategic war material, then fly on to land in the part of south-west China that was still in the hands of friendly Nationalist forces. All being well, the mission would be so unexpected it would plant the first seeds of doubt into enemy minds. It worked – the Japanese were forced to quickly divert hundreds of aircraft, men and equipment away from offensive operations to the defence of their homeland.

There was, however, another reason behind the Doolittle’s raid – to lift the morale of an American public devastated by the attack on Pearl Harbor four months earlier. And the success of the mission provided the boost that was needed. If any had doubted America’s resolve in the face of uncertainty, the courage, determination and heroism displayed by Lt Col Doolittle and his band of aviators restored their determination. Although it might take years, and the price would be high, America and her allies understood that the fight could, and would, be won.

Specially commissioned to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the Doolittle Tokyo Raid in support of the James H. Doolittle Education Fund, Anthony’s inspirational painting portrays the dramatic moment that Lt Col Jimmy Doolittle lifts his B-25 off the pitching deck of the USS Hornet. Having timed his launch to perfection he climbs steeply away, ready to adjust his compass bearing for a direct line to Tokyo. On the sodden deck behind him the crews of the remaining 15 aircraft, whose engines are warmed, ready and turning, will quickly follow their commanding officer into the murky sky.

It is of great historical importance that the prints are personally autographed by veterans that took part in the raid, allowing enthusiasts the opportunity to acquire a momentous collector’s piece in what is likely to be the last Doolittle Raiders signed edition that will ever be made available.

THE SIGNATURES
Each print is individually numbered and signed by artist Anthony Saunders. To commemorate this historic Anniversary every print has been personally signed one of the most highly regarded veterans to fly on the Doolittle Raid:

Lieutenant Colonel EDWARD J. SAYLOR
DFC AFCM with 2 Oak Clusters

THE COLLECTORS AND REMARQUE EDITIONS

In the second piece, WHERE STORM CLOUDS GATHER, the artist again draws upon his considerable talents to portray the Bf109s of JG4, one of the many Luftwaffe units that took part in the German Ardennes offensive that began in December 1944. In the foreground is Hauptmann Ernst Laube, Gruppenkommandeur of IV./JG4, seen leading his men along that part of the Mosel river dominated by the seemingly unscathed Cochem Castle. They are returning to base after a hard-fought encounter in which, outnumbered by Allied fighters, they are relieved to have survived yet another day.

Final Roster

On the evening of 5 June 1944, at a dozen airfields across southern England, more than 13,000 American paratroopers prepared themselves for a mission that would change the course of history.

The next morning these brave young men found themselves at the forefront of the bitter fighting to secure the right flank of the Normandy beach-head. The odds against them were huge and, if they failed, the American amphibious landings on Utah and Omaha beaches would face disaster – the destiny of the US First Army rested squarely on the shoulders of the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions.

Anthony Saunders brings to life the tense few hours before departure in his dramatic painting ‘Final Roster’. As daylight fades, men from the 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 82nd Airborne Division, prepare to board the C-47 Skytrains of the 43rd Troop Carrying Squadron that will take them to Normandy.

As a tribute to the gallantry shown on that fateful day, two veterans who took part in operations on D-Day have joined artist Anthony Saunders in signing every print in this memorable edition:

Staff Sergeant EDWARD H. TUNISON USAAF
74th TCS, 434th TCC, 9th Air Force
Served as a Radio Operator with the same crew and on the same C-47 throughout his time in Europe. His crew dropped paratroopers from the 101st Airborne Division into Cherbourg in the early hours of D-Day before making two more trips on the same day. They towed Horsa gliders carrying British troops during Operation Market Garden, flew re-supply operations during the Battle of the Bulge and towed gliders again during the Rhine crossings.

Captain DEAN McCANDLESS
505th PIR, 82nd Airborne Division
Commissioned as an Officer with the 82nd Airborne Division he served with 1st Battalion and made the first of his four combat jumps on 9 July 1943 at Sicily, and two months later jumped at Salerno. His third drop was on D-Day successfully capturing the bridge over the Merderet River and his final jump was during Operation Market Garden before being wounded during the Battle of the Bulge. He was awarded the Silver Star and Purple Heart.

Long Haul To Berlin

"The Americans gave us the best they had, and they gave us everything we needed as and when the need arose… they were the bravest of the brave, and I know that I am speaking for my own bomber crews when I pay this tribute."

MRAF Sir Arthur Harris

In early 1945 what remained of the Luftwaffe continued a stubborn resistance, typified in Anthony Saunders’ majestic painting. In one of their last massed attacks of the war, a group of 25 Me262s, predominately from JG7, engage a formation of B-17s from the 483rd Bomb Group during a mission to attack the Daimler-Benz tank factory in Berlin on 24 March 1945. Luckily for the bombers, their fighter escort, Mustangs from the 332nd Fighter Group – the Red Tails – were on hand to intervene, quickly dispatching three of the German jets in the combat that ensued.

The raid was the longest bombing mission ever undertaken by the US Fifteenth Air Force during World War II – a 1,600 mile round trip involving a gruelling ten-hour mission from their bases in southern Italy, crossing the Alps twice. With insufficient fuel to make it back to base, the crews knew that on their return they would have to land their B-17s on any friendly Allied airfield in northern Italy they could find.

Adding great authenticity to this superb release, the prints are personally autographed by iconic veterans of both the US 15th and 8th Air Forces who fought for Allied victory in Europe during WWII. It is of great significance that this historic edition is also endorsed with the signatures of two iconic Tuskegee P-51 Pilots, allowing enthusiasts the opportunity to acquire an important collector’s piece.

Midway - Attack on the Soryu

Thursday 4 June 1942, and Admiral Yamamoto’s 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 Midway’s power plants and oil installations, and the attack had been successful. Now, with his aircraft returned, re- fuelled and re-armed he prepared to launch a second strike to deliver the coup de grace.

By 10.20 the noise on the carrier’s packed flight decks reached a crescendo as the pilots ran up their engines whilst the Sôryû 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.

Anthony Saunders’ action-packed painting recreates the scene as the SBD pilots pull out of their death-defying dives having delivered their 1000lb bombs perfectly on target with three direct hits. Already there is utter chaos aboard the Sôryû as exploding ammunition and igniting fuel erupt onto the flight deck from the hangars below. Secondary explosions rip through the ship, fires rage beyond control and her hull shudders to contain the violent inferno. The Sôryû is doomed.

The Battle of Midway in June 1942 ranks as the most pivotal naval victory of World War II. The Military Gallery is therefore honored that joining artist Anthony Saunders, two veterans who took part in that epic encounter have signed every print in this historically important edition:

AMM 1/C GEORGE H. MAYNOR - USS Hornet crewman
AMM 1/C (Naval Aviation Pilot)JACK MORRISSEY - PBY and SBD Pilot

Pathway To The Ruhr

With silver moonlight glinting on the wave tops below, Guy Gibson leads the first wave of Lancaster’s low across the North Sea to avoid enemy detection, on the night of 16/17 May 1943. In formation with ‘Mick’ Martin on his port side and ‘Hoppy’ Hopgood to starboard, Gibson heads towards the Dutch Coast and the Ruhr valley beyond - their mission, the destruction of the Mőhne and Eder Dams.

In one of the finest paintings of his career, leading aviation artist Anthony Saunders has completed one of the most compelling Dambuster images of recent years. The Military Gallery is honoured that this release, the last in the 70th Anniversary Series, has been signed by veterans who helped to create the Dambusters legend.

Each print is personally signed by four veterans that were directly involved in the raid, including two of the last surviving Aircrew to take part:

Sqn Ldr LES MUNRO CNZM DSO QSO DFC RNZAF
Cpl MAUREEN STEVENS WAAF
Sqn Ldr GEORGE ‘JOHNNY’ JOHNSON DFM RAF

This fitting tribute to one of the most legendary missions in the history of aerial warfare, creates a historic collectors’ item for aviation art enthusiasts and history buffs alike.

Return Of The Pathfinders

Anthony Saunders’ atmospheric painting Return of the Pathfinders depicts the Pathfinder Mosquitos of 139 (Jamaica) Squadron, a unit that had joined Bomber Command’s No 8 (Pathfinder) Group in July 1943. Anthony skilfully conjures up the mood as dawn breaks over a crisp, icy landscape in a burst of colour that illuminates the Mosquitos as they follow the course of the River Great Ouse on their return to RAF Upwood after a long overnight trip to Germany in early 1944. During a period that began on the night of 20 / 21st February 1944 this particular squadron undertook a series of 36 consecutive night attacks on Berlin.

Adding great authenticity to this superb release, every print has been personally signed by highly respected veterans who flew de Havilland Mosquitos in combat during WWII, including members of the Pathfinder Force, creating a historic collector’s edition.

THE SIGNATURES

Joining artist Anthony Saunders in signing every print are four decorated aircrew who flew Mosquitos in combat during World War II, including members of the Pathfinder Force:

Strike On Berlin

The swaggering figure of the Reichsmarschall swept imperiously into the Air Ministry on Berlin’s Wilhemstrasse, his jewel-encrusted baton and extravagant uniform as flamboyant as ever. This was Saturday, 30 January 1943, the tenth Anniversary of the Nazi Party coming to power, and Goering was about to deliver the main speech in tribute to the Party and its leader, the Fuhrer - Adolf Hitler.

The Royal Air Force had other plans for the anniversary. In stark defiance of the imagined air security safeguarding Berlin, brave pilots of 105 and 139 Sqn's took to the air in de Havilland Mosquito's, on course for Germany. Their mission: RAF Bomber Command’s first daylight raid on Berlin!

The raid was timed to perfection and three Mosquito's of 105 Sqn raced headlong, low level towards their target - the Haus des Rundfunks, headquarters of the German State broadcasting company. It was an hour before Goering could finally be broadcast. He was boiling with rage and humiliation.

A few hours later, adding further insult, Mosquito's from 139 Sqn swept over the city in a second attack moments before Goebbels addressed a Nazi mass rally in the Sportpalast. Goering’s promise that enemy aircraft would never fly over the Reich was broken, the echo of that shame would haunt him for the rest of the war.

Anthony Saunders dramatic painting pays tribute to this pivotal moment in the war. His masterful brush brings the scene into vibrant, spectacular life with painstaking attention to detail, capturing the Mosquito B.Mk.IVs of 105 Sqn departing the target area, following their successful strike on the Haus des Rundfunk.

Importantly the Military Gallery has managed to trace no less than three highly distinguished Mosquito crew who flew many of those dangerous missions to Berlin, and that they have personally signed every print in the release.

Flight Lieutenant KEN TEMPEST DFC
He flew over 40 missions as a Navigator on Mosquito's, more than 20 of them to Berlin.

Flight Lieutenant COLIN BELL DFC AFC
Completed 50 operations as a Mosquito Pilot, including 13 missions to Berlin.

Flight Lieutenant GEORGE DUNN DFC
A Pilot, he flew 30 operations in Halifaxes and then 14 missions as a Pathfinder in Mosquito's to Berlin in Mosquito's.

To Hell And Back - Operation Tidal Wave

Flying at low-level over the Astra Romana oil refinery,Lt James Merrick of the 98th Bomb Group powers his B-24 ‘Lil De-icer’ through the pall of burning debris as time-delayed bombs, dropped in error by a previous Group, explode beneath them. With any hope of surprise now lost, and taking heavy losses in the process, the crews of the 98th bravely hold their bombers on course.

Allied planners knew that just over a third of all Germany’s oil came from a single source – the oil fields at Ploesti, far to the east of deepest Romania. If the oilfields and refineries at Ploesti could be destroyed, then Hitler’s armies would be dealt a savage blow from which they might never recover.

Anthony Saunders’ dramatic painting, specially commissioned to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of Operation Tidal Wave, pays tribute to the heroes who flew the epic Ploesti mission.

The Military Gallery is proud that to honor the crews who took part in that historic operation, each print is personally signed by three veterans who flew on the Ploesti mission:

Captain CHARLES D. CAVIT.
Captain ANDREW W. OPSATA
Technical Sergeant RICHARD E. TUTTLE
