The Five Architects of Victory in the Air

Pictured against the backdrop of Hurricanes poised for attack, fighter ace Douglas Bader represents the courage and tenacity of the pilots themselves. Bader lost both his legs in 1931 yet flew Hurricanes and Spitfires wearing artificial limbs.

As Prime Minister, Sir Winston Churchill kept the nation united with his inspirational oratory during those tense summer months. His bulldog determination is captured beautifully by the portrait featured here with his the three-word phrase that defined the moment - ‘Their Finest Hour’.

Air Chief Marshal Sir Hugh Dowding masterminded Britain’s air defences as they faced their ultimate test in the Battle of Britain. His preparation, planning and strategy were key to victory, He is shown with a formation of Spitfires and Hurricanes in the background.

Depicted in front of an illustration of radar pulses, Sir Robert Watson-Watt was the unsung hero of the Battle of Britain. It was he who discovered and developed the detection of aircraft by radio waves, which gave Fighter Command vital time to prepare for and counter Luftwaffe attacks.

As Minister of Aircraft Production, Lord Beaverbrook was masterminded the ‘Saucepans for Spitfires’ scheme. Calling for donations of aluminium, which families donated in the form of pots and pans, he enabled the recycling of metal to build the Battle of Britain fighter planes.
