WILLIE TAIT - RAF Bomber Command Pilot Signature - RAFB02


Collector's autograph display featuring the original signature of Group Captain JAMES 'WILLIE' TAIT DSO*** DFC* ADC - RAF Bomber Command.

A very highly decorated bomber pilot who completed 100 operational sorties, flew throughout the war, took part in many of the most significant raids and was awarded four DSOs and two DFCs for gallantry and devotion to duty - an inspired leader. Best remembered for his daylight attack on the Tirpitz in Alten Fjord on 12 November 1944 when, leading a formation of 31 Lancaster bombers from 617 and 9 Sqns, they attacked the German battleship from 11,000 feet, each dropping a tall-boy bomb. Tait's bomb aimer Danny Daniels was credited with a direct hit and the Tirpitz took on a noticeable list. The great battleship later rolled over and sank.

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. 

FREE - pack of 4 top quality aviation Christmas cards included.
