Dambusters Aviation Prints by Anthony Saunders and David Pentland. - davidpentland.co.uk

DHM6001. Low Pass Over the Möhne Dam by Anthony Saunders. <p>Operation Chastise, the plan to destroy the mighty Ruhr dams, was bold, audacious and dangerous.  It was also set to become one of the most legendary combat missions ever undertaken in the history of aviation warfare.  In late February 1943 a unique decision was taken by the RAF to form the now legendary 617 Squadron, a highly specialised unit within Bomber Command.  Its task was to be the destruction of the huge Möhne, Sorpe and Eder dams, which provided vital services to German industry.  Tasked with providing the crews for this new squadron was the young, outstanding, bomber and night-fighter pilot Wing Commander Guy Gibson, already a veteran of 174 bomber operations.  On 21st March 1943 the unit was formed at RAF Scampton under his command, and the chosen men had just eight weeks to prepare for the task in hand.  <b><p> Signed by :<br><a href=signatures.php?Signature=449>Squadron Leader George L.
