Royal Air Force Bomber Command Series

 

“Bomber aircrews took all the same risks that we pilots took and the fact that entire crews are represented in your fine collection of autographs makes this project all the more valuable”

Group Captain Leonard Cheshire, VC, DSO**, DFC* April 1984


Standard Edition:

 

"Group Captain James 'Willie' Tait DSO***, DFC*"

A very highly decorated bomber pilot, who completed 100 operational sorties, flew throughout the war, took part in many of the most significant raids and was awarded four DSOs and two DFCs for gallantry and devotion to duty. An inspired leader.

Best remembered for his daylight attack on the Tirpitz in Alten Fjord on 12 November 1944 when, leading a formation of 31 Lancaster bombers from 617 and 9 Squadrons, they attacked the German battleship from 11,000, each dropping a tall-boy bomb. Tait’s bomb aimer Danny Daniels was credited with a direct hit and the Tirpitz took on a noticeable list. The great battleship later rolled over and sank.

BACKGROUND, PROVENANCE & AUTHENTICITY

Each autograph was personally collected in the early 1980s by Mr Pat Barnard, who had founded the Military Gallery during the 1970's. These original signatures formed part of a project supported by Group Captain Sir Douglas Bader, Group Captain Leonard Cheshire VC, Air Vice Marshal Johnnie Johnson, Brigadier General Robin Olds and General Adolf Galland, all of whom advised and helped Mr Barnard collect the signatures.

Every Autograph (signature) offered by the publisher with this series of "Ensembles" is guaranteed to be original and genuine. Our reputation depends upon our integrity: We do not buy signatures from outside sources where it is often difficult to ascertain authenticity. We have the undisputed provenance for each signature which means that every Certificate of Authenticity supplied by the publisher is as genuine as the signatures it supports.

The Certificate of Authenticity supplied with each original autograph is authorised by the publisher, therefore making the Certificate a valuable document in itself. To counter the proliferation of forged signatures in the market today, and to guarantee the genuine nature of your investment, please keep your Certificate safe and secure. It will ensure there can never be any doubt as to the value of your collection in years to come.
