Susan and I got together with Bobby Gibbes, Bruce Watson and Ted Sly this
morning and they signed my new print "Shark Patrol" in which all three are
featured amongst other 457 Sq Spitfire Mk VIIIs.

There are 300 regular prints which sell for $180 AUD and 30 artist proofs which
sell for $300 AUD with 30% of the proceeds going to the SMDF (Spitfire Memorial
Of course, during the course of the three hour long signing (which included a
break for tea and scotch finger biscuits), Susan and I got to hear all kinds of
great stories of the three pilots' exploits while flying Hurricanes, Kittyhawks
and Spitfires in Europe, North Africa and the Pacific.
