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


 


Special Edition:

 

"Air Marshal Sir Ivor Broom DSO, DFC**, AFC & Wing Commander Roy Ralston DSO*, AFC, DFM"

Both pilots began the war flying the outdated Blenheim on perilous raids over Germany and occupied territories and both completed the war flying the high performance Mosquito – against targets in Germany. Both Mosquito pilots formed inseparable bonds with their navigators, relying implicitly on each other’s finely honed skills. Both became highly decorated.

After low-level missions against enemy shipping off the coast of France, Broom and his Blenheims transferred to Malta to harrass Rommel’s North African shipping supply lines. Returning to UK in 1943 he became one of the Pathfinders most prominent Mosquito pilots till the war’s end. Roy Ralston, flying Mosquitos with 105 Squadron, completed a second tour of low-level bombing missions with an attack on the railway works at Trier. He too, then joined Bennett’s Pathfinder Force.

 

The Print:

Pathfinder Mosquito by Darryl Legg

The Mosquito, in various guises, flew in almost every role performed by the RAF in WWII. It was light, fast and manoeverable, making this wooden aircraft a favourite with its two-man crews. Darryl Legg’s painting shows the Pathfinder variant.

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.
