DON BENNETT - RAF Pilot Signature - RAFB01


Collector's autograph display featuring the original signature of Air Vice Marshal DON BENNETT CB, CBE, DSO - RAF WW2 Bomber Command Pilot.

The Pathfinder Force was conceived entirely by Don Bennett. In July 1942 he was given the task of melding several RAF bomber squadrons into No. 109 Sqn, to form the new Pathfinder Force – initially flying Wellingtons and Mosquitos. His new concept revolutionised the RAF’s bombing tactics. A seasoned commercial pilot before the war, Bennett first led 77 Sqn’s Whitleys then 10 Sqn’s Halifax bombers, the latter included a low-level attack mission on the Tirpitz in Trondhjem Fjord on 27 April 1942. Shot down, his crew baled out, avoided capture and a month later were back in England. Within months Bennett’s 8 Group Pathfinders was formed and the RAF’s approach to target location and precision bombing was transformed.

This mounted ensemble will fit into a generally available, standard size 12 x 12 inch ready made frame. Or alternatively you can order it already fitted into a frame. More information on framing options.

Exclusive to us - this signature ensemble comes with a free, high quality, printed information sheet and a detailed pilot bio - particularly useful if you are giving the ensemble as a gift - more information.
