Two of the most famous Battle of Britain fighter aces together on a cover to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the first flight of the Spitfire. 

This is cover no.1 in the limited issue which was flown in Spitfire IIa P7350 on 5th March 1976, over Southampton, exactly 40 years after K5054 first took to the sky.

 A really nice, scarce signed cover
