Description

After attempts spanning four years, on 12th November 1944, Lancasters of Number 9 and 617 Squadrons successfully attacked the German battleship Tirpitz in Tromso Fjord, Norway.

Led by Wing Commander James Tait, using the 12000lb “Tallboy” bomb devised by Barnes Wallis, the Lancaster crews devastated the huge ship in a massive aerial bombardment, the Tirpitz capsizing and sinking inside just eleven minutes.

THE SIGNATURES

Every print is authenticated by the original signatures of Group Captain James Tait, who led the Tirpitz raid, Squadron Leader Tony Iveson – one of 617 Squadrons most prominent pilots, and Leutnant Willi Volsing, a German officer on the Tirpitz.
