On the night of 16/17 May 1943 Lancasters of 617 Squadron breached the mighty Dams in the Ruhr Valley in one of the most remarkable precision bombing raids of WWII – a mission all but a few thought was impossible. Here 'Dinghy' Young, flying Lancaster AJ-A, heading through flak and machine gun fire towards the Möhne Dam at precisely 60ft, has just released his bouncing bomb 'Upkeep' – clearly visible against the huge splash created as it hits the water. The mighty Möhne Dam has but moments to live.

Published in 2006 this stunning piece has become one of the most collectible editions in Robert’s extensive portfolio and a ‘must have’ for Dambuster enthusiasts the world over.

This Collector's Edition print boats no less than SEVEN signatures of veterans who participated in the raid:

  • Sergeant Ray Grayston
  • Squadron Leader George Johnson MBE DFM
  • Squadron Leader Les Munro CNZM DSO QSO DFC
  • Sergeant Fred Sutherland
  • Flight Sergeant Grant McDonald
  • Corporal Beck Parsons
  • Corporal Ken Lucas
  • Marshal of the RAF Sir Arthur T. Harris BT, GCB OBE DD
  • Sir BARNES WALLIS CBE FRS RDI FRAeS
  • Air Marshal Sir Harold 'Mick' Martin KCB CB DSO* DFC* AFC

Making this a completely UNIQUE piece, our expert team have included the ORIGINAL and fully authenticated signatures of three famous veterans who were instrumental in the planning and execution of the raid:

  • Marshal of the RAF ARTHUR HARRIS Bt GCB OBE AFC - Commander in Chief of Bomber Command at the time of the raid
