Description

The breathtaking skill and courage displayed by the crews of 617 Squadron on the moonlit night of 17 May 1943 created a legend that remains undimished.

Guy Gibson leads the first wave of 617 Squadron’s Lancaster bombers towards the German border and on to the Mőhne dam. After crossing the coast a fraction off course, Gibson adjusts his compass heading slightly and, as the unmistakable thunder of 12 cylinder Merlin engines at full throttle shatters the night, follows the course of a large canal where the owner of an ancient windmill, hearing the noise, hurries outside to witness the event.

This outstanding piece is issued as part of the Dambusters 70th Anniversary series, released throughout 2013.

THE SIGNATURES

Every print has been personally signed by two aircrew veterans who took part in Operation Chastise. Each print is individually signed by artist Richard Taylor, and hand-numbered:

Squadron Leader LES MUNRO CNZM DSO QSO DFC
Squadron Leader GEORGE JOHNSON MBE DFM

THE TRIBUTE EDITION

The six signature Tribute Edition is issued with a stunning ORIGINAL pencil drawing created by Richard Taylor especially to mark the 70th Anniversary of the Dambuster Raid. Individually created in pencil on ‘sepia’ tinted paper, with colored highlights skillfully blended into the graphite, every one of these ten superbly crafted drawings is a unique original work, and each is individually conservation matted to include the original pencil signatures of four further Dambuster veterans. Together with the matching numbered main print, this historic collection of six signatures provides a very special piece for all collectors enthralled by the legend of the Dambusters:

Sergeant RAY GRAYSTON
Flight Lieutenant GEORGE CHALMERS DFC DFM
Sergeant DUDLEY HEAL DFM
Flight Lieutenant EDWARD JOHNSON DFC
