FINAL BRIEFING – TWO Double Remarques (Framed Secondary Market Copy)
by Anthony Saunders
RAF Scampton: 16 May 1943 20.55 hrs – Guy Gibson readies his crew to climb inside their waiting Lancaster – AJ-G ‘George’. A red flare will soon curl skywards, burning brightly against the sun’s fast-fading rays; it is the signal to start engines and at 21.39 G-George will get airborne, leading the first wave of three aircraft. For the crews of 617 Squadron the weeks of intensive training were now over – Operation Chastise was underway.
Overall Print Size: 26 ½” wide x 19 ½” high
