Guild of Aviation Artists

Each year, Cross & Cockade International award a prize for the best WW1 Aviation painting in the Guild's annual exhibition. This year's exhibition was held, as usual at The Mall Galleries, near Admiralty Arch, London - and as usual there was a fine crop of paintings for our judges to pick from.

This year's winner is "Into the Hands of Fate" by Graham Turner. It shows a flight of RE8s of 59 Squadron, about to go about their everyday business over the lines, on 13th April 1917. None of the six aircraft would return home.

A worthy winner! Prints or cards of this painting can be purchased here:
