The story of RAF Bomber Command’s audacious attack on the great dams of western Germany using the ingenious 'bouncing bomb', continues to inspire long after those events on the night of 16 / 17 May 1943. Few wartime missions have replicated the skill, courage and bravery demonstrated that night and the Dambusters have rightly gained legendary status.
Robert Taylor’s dramatic work in graphite and paint – originally created as the working drawing for his acclaimed painting Three Good Bounces, depicts Flt Lt Mick Martin’s attack on the Möhne Dam. Martin, flying AJ-P, releases his Upkeep bomb while Guy Gibson flies off his starboard beam to draw the enemy flak. Despite scoring a direct hit the dam held; his radio operator tapping out ‘Goner-5-8-A’ (the code for - ‘Special weapon released’).
Printed and signed some years ago in preparation for the 75th anniversary, we and the publisher are honored that four veterans who took part in this iconic mission have personally signed the prints in this poignant release.
