For King & Country

In the morning light, Hurricanes of No. 56 Squadron scramble from North Weald to intercept a large formation of bombers heading for London. Below them, the airfield recovers from the damage of successive Luftwaffe attacks and the Hurricanes of No.151 Squadron which are receiving essential maintenance are, for safety, dispersed around the perimeter.
Artist Nicolas Trudgian was chosen to paint The Battle of Britain Memorial Trust’s official 75th Anniversary commemorative fundraising picture of the Battle of Britain, which is here reproduced as a highly detailed 636 piece panoramic puzzle.
Our 636 panoramic jigsaw puzzles are the same width as our 1000 piece puzzles but have a reduced height – the perfect size for piecing together on a coffee table! As with all Gibsons jigsaws, the beautifully illustrated pieces are made from the highest quality 100% recycled board and are therefore a pleasure to work with again and again.
The backgrounds to his aviation prints are for many collectors the real attraction, as in many cases his pictures would be satisfying even if the aeroplanes were removed. From the white cliffs of Dover to the sands of North Africa there are endless opportunities for backdrops to his aviation landscapes.
Since 1991 Nicolas has lived in the Cotswold Hills in Gloucestershire in a house built in the corner of what was once a Battle of Britain airfield.
Each puzzle measures 32x69cm when complete.
Made from thick, durable board that is 100% recycled.
Beautifully painted by Nicolas Trudgian.
