THE BREACH – TWO Double Remarques (Framed Secondary Market Copy)
by Anthony Saunders
The Möhne Dam: 17 May 1943, 00.49 hrs – Guy Gibson engages enemy flak positions whilst Lancaster AJ-J, with pilot David Maltby at the controls, banks steeply away after delivering the coup-de-grace. A huge explosion and towering pillar of water marks the breach where a vast torrent begins to flood the valley below.
Print Size: 26.5″ x 19.5″
Along with the artist, each print has been signed by a veteran who flew on the Dambusters mission:
Squadron Leader GEORGE ‘JOHNNY’ JOHNSON DFM
He served as Bomb Aimer on American Joe McCarthy’s Lancaster AJ-T, but as they were using a reserve aircraft, George did not have the benefit of the twin Aldis spotlights for accurate height keeping. So on their tenth pass George released his bomb, scoring a direct hit – but the earth dam survived the blast.
This truly unique double, double remarque is in extremely good condition, and has been professionally framed using conservation materials.
