NORMAN JACKSON VC - RAF Bomber Command Aircrew Signature - RAFB10


Collector's autograph display featuring the original signature of Warrant Officer NORMAN JACKSON VC - RAF Bomber Command - Hall of Fame Collection.

On the night of 26/27th April 1943, aboard a brand new Lancaster bomber, the target for Flt Engineer Jackson's 30th sortie was the highly defended ball-bearing factory at Schweinfurt. Exiting the target, his aircraft was attacked by a German night fighter, setting the starboard fuel tank on fire. Jackson, already wounded, strapped on a parachute, grabbed a fire extinguisher and climbed out onto the wing in an astonishingly courageous attempt to fight the fire. Incredibly, he was partially successful but the enemy fighter returned and its gunfire raked across the wing hitting Jackson's legs, and sweeping him off the wing. With the Lancaster now seriously damaged and on fire, the remaining crew baled out, all surviving. Meantime Jackson fell 20,000 feet, his burnt and holed parachute somehow saving his life, to spend the next 10 months in hospital as a POW. For his selfless bravery Norman Jackson was awarded the Victoria Cross.
