The 6-signature Tribute Edition includes an original pencil drawing!
Guy Gibson leads the first wave of 617 Squadron’s Lancaster bombers towards the German border and on to the Mőhne dam. After crossing the coast a fraction off course, Gibson adjusts his compass heading slightly and, as the unmistakable thunder of 12 cylinder Merlin engines at full throttle shatters the night, follows the course of a large canal where the owner of an ancient windmill, hearing the noise, hurries outside to witness the event.
The Double Remarque Edition will be issued with a DOUBLE SIZE drawing. Overflowing with detail and content, each drawing will measure approximately 10” in width and each will have a unique Dambuster theme but if you should have a special request, please enquire when placing your order.
