Trevor Mitchell - Harvesting Victory - Fordson & Spitfire Mk.I
Land Army Fordson Tractor with a Supermarine Spitfire of 610 Squadron Birthday Greeting Card by artist Trevor Mitchell
The third in our series of Land Army cards, Harvesting Victory is also the earliest, showing a Spitfire Mk.I of 610 squadron around the time of the Battle of Britain. The Fordson tractor had by this time become a ubiquitous piece of equipment around farms up and down the country and this work really does show the importance of the fighting forces and the home front in securing final victory.
In Trevor Mitchell's Battle of Britain Farming Birthday Card the Women’s Land Army, A Fordson tractor and Spitfire can be seen together, giving support to one another through a dark period in Britain’s modern history
