On the night of 16 / 17 May 1943, nineteen specially modified Lancasters of 617 Sqn left RAF Scampton to attack the mighty dams of the Ruhr valley using an ingenious 'bouncing bomb'. What followed would become legendary as one of the most audacious bombing raids ever attempted, and within hours the destruction of the Möhne and Eder dams would wreak havoc with the German war machine.
This latest cameo drawing from Robert’s Graphite Collection portrays the Lancaster of Wing Commander Guy Gibson leading the first wave with precision low flying over Holland en-route to the Möhne dam.
Each print is accompanied by a matching numbered copy of the fascinating book, We Will Remember Them, written with Guy Gibson's widow, Eve Gibson, and the portfolio includes the original signatures of Dambuster veterans.
