United States Army Air Force Combat Series

“The great British fighter ace Johnnie Johnson wrote: ‘There were many outstanding American fighter pilots… the Navy and Marine pilots that fought the Pacific battles were among the bravest and most determined of WWII’. Although my WWII air combat experience was in the European Theater, I endorse that view”

Brigadier General Robin Olds, March, 1984


 


Standard Edition:

 

"Brigadier General Robin Olds USAAF, AFC, SS, DFC, DFC(UK)"

Robin Olds arrived in Europe joining the 479th Fighter Group in May 1944 flying Lightning P-38Js and Mustang P-51Ds. He became an Ace within 12 weeks of his arrival and by the end of the war, now commanding the 434th’s  P-51 Mustangs, he’d flown over 100 missions and scored 24 victories, 13 in air-to-air combat.

Years later, during the war in Southeast Asia where he completed 152 combat missions, Olds flew McDonnell Douglas F-4C and D model Phantoms on some of the most gruelling missions of the war – including his famous “MiG Sweep”. The citation for the third Oak Leaf Cluster to his Silver Star was awarded for “exemplary airmanship, extraordinary heroism and indomitable aggressiveness” in the epic low-level bombing raid on the Thai Ngyen steel mill blast furnaces. He was later was awarded the Air Force Cross for his part in the Famous Paul Doumier Bridge raid.

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.
