 A delightful greeting card for your collection or to use . It is called Spitfire Scramble by Keith Woodcock

The card is blank inside and comes with a envelope and its all wrapped in clear cellophane as you would get on a quality card in a card shop The size of the card is approx 7 inches ( 13cms) by 5 inches ( 12 cm ) - Perfect if you are a card collector or wish to send to a friend . I know some customers frame them.

Multi buyers –buy but please do not pay until you get my invoice  If you buy/win more than one item from my listings -( see my other listings I could tempt you )I always give a post discount if they can be posted together as the e bay system does not always get it right

Postage is a bit of a problem at the moment in relation to the cost of a single card. I charge just little over the actual cost. The actual cost when I have packed your card with stiff packing cardboard then the envelope containing item is above 5mm thick and thus becomes a large letter which now costs 93p to post first class to an address in the UK and eBay take a slice of the postage price now as well as the selling price. (Still cheaper than parking your car or a cup of coffee out)

If you buy this card then one solution is to buy other items and take advantage of my post discount offer up to any 5 other cards from any of my buy it now listings. (Please see my other current listings) Thank you for reading this.

Just so you know I used recycled envelope and recycled cardboard stiffener to protect your card

Should you require an urgent despatch for any reason then please let me know

The Supermarine Spitfire is a British single-seat fighter aircraft used by the Royal Air Force and many other Allied countries through the Second World War. The Spitfire continued to be used into the 1950s both as a front line fighter and in secondary roles. It was produced in greater numbers than any other British aircraft and was the only Allied fighter in production throughout the war.[5]

The Spitfire was designed as a short-range high-performance interceptor aircraft[6] by R. J. Mitchell, chief designer at Supermarine Aviation Works (since 1928 a subsidiary of Vickers-Armstrongs). He continued to refine the design until his death from cancer in 1937, whereupon his colleague Joseph Smith became chief designer.[7] The Spitfire's elliptical wing had a thin cross-section, allowing a higher top speed than the Hawker Hurricane and several contemporary fighters.[8] Speed was seen as essential to carry out the mission of home defence against enemy bombers.[6]

The distinctive silhouette imparted by the wing planform helped the Spitfire to achieve legendary status during the Battle of Britain. Despite a public perception that it was the RAF fighter of the battle, the more numerous Hurricane actually shouldered a greater proportion of the burden against the Luftwaffe.[9]

After the Battle of Britain, the Spitfire became the backbone of RAF Fighter Command and saw action in the European Theatre, Pacific Theatre and the South-East Asian theatre. Much loved by its pilots, the Spitfire saw service in several roles, including interceptor, photo-reconnaissance, fighter-bomber, carrier-based fighter, and trainer; it was built in many different variants, with two different types of engine and several wing configurations.[9]

The Spitfire will always be compared to its main adversary, the Messerschmitt Bf 109; both followed similar design philosophies of marrying a small, streamlined airframe to a powerful liquid-cooled V12 engine.
