Anyone know name and author of the picture in my signature? I grabbed it at AcesHighGallery the other day for my sig, and someone has paged me for the details of it, but i can't find it again for the life of me!!!

Anyone? Cheers.

This beautiful painting is called "Winter of 41",by Phillip West.

Situation: Heavy snow during the winter of 1941 often kept pilots and their aircraft grounded, despite the best efforts of the ground crew. Spitfire 'G' George - based at RAF Manston and assigned to Flt. Lt. Geoffrey Wellum, could only resume combat sweeps over northern Europe once the storm had passed and they were all satisfied the aircraft was safe to fly.

The prints are co-signed by Flt Lt. Geoffrey Wellum DFC.

I don't know but I think it's "Winter of '41" by Philip West.

I might be wrong. Can anyone confirm?

You could be right - the name certainly rings a bell.
