about this piece
Guy Gibson leads the first wave of 617 SquadronĂs 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.

Signatures May Vary by Edition


THE LIMITED EDITION, ARTIST PROOFS & REMARQUES
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
The Captain and Pilot of Lancaster AJ-W which was assigned to attack the Sorpe Dam.

Squadron Leader GEORGE ŠJOHNNYĂ JOHNSON DFM
The Bomb Aimer with Joe McCarthyĂs crew in Lancaster AJ-T that attacked the Sorpe Dam.

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 coloured highlights skilfully 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 RAYMOND GRAYSTON RAF
Flight Engineer on AJ-N that successfully breached the Eder Dam.

Flight Lieutenant GEORGE CHALMERS DFC DFM
Wireless Operator on AJ-O which attacked the Ennepe Dam.

Flight Lieutenant EDWARD JOHNSON DFC
Bomb Aimer AJ-N that breached the Eder Dam.

Sergeant DUDLEY HEAL DFM
Navigator in Lancaster AJ-F, which attacked the Sorpe Dam.
