This special collector's autograph display commemorating the legendary Dambusters Raid by Bomber Command includes the original signatures of MICK MARTIN and DAVID SHANNON.
Operation Chastise, the daring attack on German dams was carried out on the night of 16-17th May 1943 by RAF 617 Squadron, later to be universally know as the Dambusters. The 'bouncing bomb' developed by Barnes Wallis was fitted to specially modified Lancasters.
Mick Martin was Guy Gibson’s deputy leader on Operation Chastise, Martin’s aircraft being the third to run in on the Mohne Dam. David Shannon’s run was called off as the dam was breached but carried on to be the first aircraft to strike the Eder Dam. Both Lancaster pilots were awarded the DSO for their part in the raid.
This beautiful double mounted display includes metal RAF wings, miniature replica gallantry awards, artwork by Darryl Legg and of course the original signatures of famous Dambusters Air Marshal Sir HAROLD ‘MICK’ MARTIN KCB DSO* DFC** AFC and Squadron Leader DAVID SHANNON DSO* DFC* - sure to increase in value over time this would make the perfect gift for any historic aviation enthusiast.
