Pilot Profiles Album - RAF Bomber Command - Military Gallery


A tribute to the fearless WW2 pilots of RAF Bomber Command.

A superb limited edition album that looks closely at 26 distinguished and highly decorated Bomber Command veterans including five holders of the Victoria Cross. First released in 1984 by the Military Gallery, the album comprises 26 printed sheets (each protected in the album by a sheet of clear acetate), one per pilot, each of which has a pilot bio, notes on their squadrons, combat reports and aircraft types flown, a wartime photo and illustrations of their medals for gallantry - each profile is personally signed by the pilot.

The veterans featured include Norman Jackson VC, Bill Reid VC, Sir Ivor Broom, Sir Harold Martin and Marshal of the Royal Air Force Sir Michael Beetham. The album cover is in RAF blue with titling and the RAF crest embossed with gold leaf. A rare opportunity to acquire this much sought after collection of signatures.
