Collector's autograph display featuring the original signatures of Group Captain LEONARD CHESHIRE VC OM DSO** DFC and Wing Commander RODERICK LEAROYD VC - RAF Bomber Command.
Leonard Cheshire, holder of the Victoria Cross and the RAF's most highly decorated flyer in WWII, is joined by another recipient of Britain's highest award for gallantry, Roderick Learoyd. Both bomber pilots were aware of the enormous responsibility they carried with the lives of their crews depending on their skill - both rose continually to the challenge. Leonard Cheshire was awarded the Victoria Cross in 1944 for four and a half years of sustained bravery during a total of 100 bomber operations. His final and possibly most momentous was as the official British witness on board the aircraft that dropped the atom bomb on Nagasaki on 9 August 1945. Rod Learoyd was awarded the Victoria Cross for his part in the low-level night attack on the lock gates of the Dortmund-Ems canal on 12 August, 1940. He somehow got his badly damaged Hampden and its crew back to Scampton without loss of life.
