RAF Bomber Command Series- Lancaster Crew Edition


Price per Unit (piece): £197.00


A Commemorative Display


Despite knowing Bomber Command was suffering greater losses than any other division of Allied armed forces, all aircrew in the Command were volunteers; their pure courage, determination and devotion to duty is indelibly written into the pages of  Royal Air Force history.

 

For the very first time, anywhere, we offer collectors a unique Display with the original hand-signed autographs of a complete crew comprising ALL SEVEN positions in the most famous of WWII Allied bombers – the remarkable Avro Lancaster:


PILOT: Air Chief Marshal Sir Augustus Walker DSO, DFC, AFC
AIR ENGINEER: Warrant Officer Norman Jackson, VC
NAVIGATOR: Flight Lieutenant John Benison, DFC
BOMB AIMER: Flying Officer Bill Parker, DFC
WIRELESS OPERATOR: Flying Officer Roland Hammersley, DFM
MID-UPPER GUNNER: Warrant Officer Derek Tulloch, DFC, DFM
REAR GUNNER: Flight Lieutenant Victor Azzaro, DFC*

 

 

By some miracle, this magnificent seven of highly decorated young men who, while still in their 20s, defied the fearsome perils of the night missions over enemy territory when all the odds were stacked against them. Now they come together to form a complete Lancaster crew again, to provide what surely must be one of the most desirable, and potentially valuable WWII aviation pieces ever brought to the collector market.

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.
