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 Victoria Cross Edition:


"Group Captain Leonard Cheshire VC, DSO**, DFC* & Wing Commander Roderick Learoyd VC"

Leonard Cheshire, holder of the Victoria Cross and the RAF’s most highly decorated flyer in WWII, is joined by another recipient of Britain’s highest award for gallantry, Roderick Learoyd. Both bomber pilots were aware of the enormous responsibility they carried with their crews’ lives depending on their skill, and both rose continually to the challenge.

Leonard Cheshire was awarded the Victoria Cross in 1944 for four and a half years of sustained bravery during a total of 100 bomber operations. His final and possibly most momentous was as the official British witness on board the aircraft that dropped the atom bomb on Nagasaki on 9 August, 1945. Rod Learoyd was awarded the Victoria Cross for his part in the low-level night attack on the lock gates of the Dortmund-Ems canal on 12 August, 1940. He somehow got his badly damaged Hampden and its crew back to Scampton without loss of life.

 

The Print:

Lancasters Outward Bound 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.
