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:


"Air Vice Marshal Don Bennett DFC"

The Pathfinder Force was conceived entirely by Don Bennett. In July 1942 he was given the task of melding several RAF bomber squadrons into No 109 Squadron, to form the new Pathfinder Force – initially flying Wellingtons and Mosquitos. His new concept revolutionised the RAF’s bombing tactics.

A seasoned commercial pilot before the war, Bennett first led 77 Squadron’s Whitleys then 10 Squadrons Halifaxes, the latter on a low-level attack on the Tirpitz in Trondhjem Fjord on 27 April 1942. Shot down his crew baled out, avoided capture and a month later were back in England. Within months Bennett’s 8 Group Pathfinders was formed and the RAF’s approach to target location and precision bombing was transformed.

Lancasters Outward Bound by Darryl Legg

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.
