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


 


Victoria Cross Edition:


"Flight Lieutenant William 'Bill' Reid VC & Warrant Officer Norman Jackson VC"

Two of the RAF’s most illustrious names, both holders of the Victoria Cross. Bill Reid and Norman Jackson were both decorated with Britain’s highest award for gallantry following actions in the deadly night skies over Germany: Bill Reid piloting a Lancaster, Norman Jackson the Flight Engineer on a similar aircraft.

Two of less than 12 RAF recipients of the Victoria Cross to survive the war, Bill Reid and Norman Jackson both represented the spirit and determination than ran right through Bomber Command. All volunteers, more that 55,000 aircrew never came home. But for the bravery of men like Reid and Jackson many more would have perished.

This rare collector’s piece, with the signatures of two holders of Britain’s highest award for valour, will become a treasured heirloom.

 

The Print:

Lancasters Over The Target by Darryl Legg



The Medal:

To represent one of the RAF gallantry decorations each one of these pilots received during World War Two, a miniature replica Victoria Cross medal has been expertly mounted into the display.

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.
