Dambusters Discount 5 Print Pack.- Cranston Fine Arts Historical Art
DHM6400. Final Briefing by Anthony Saunders. <p> RAF Scampton: 16 May 1943 20.55 hrs.  Everyone at Scampton suspected that something big was about to happen.  The crews of the recently formed 617 Squadron, hand-picked by their CO Wing Commander Guy Gibson, had been training hard for weeks and the rumour on the grapevine suggested it might be the Tirpitz they were after.  But then, late in the afternoon of 16 May 1943 came the call over the station tannoy that they had all been waiting for: 'All crews of 617 Squadron to report to the briefing room - immediately.'  The buzz of excited conversation dropped into silence as Gibson addressed them, and the secret was shared: their small force was about to attack the major dams of western Germany.  It was what they had been waiting for and they would go that night.  Final Briefing is the first in Anthony Saunders' pair of prints to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of the Dambuster Raid and depicts the moment at dispersal as 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. <b><p>Signed by :<br>Corporal Maureen Stevens. <p>Signed limited edition of 350 prints.  <p>  Paper size 26.5 inches x 19.5 inches (67cm x 50cm) Image size 21.5 inches x 14 inches (54cm x 36cm)
B0314. The One That Broke The Dam by Ivan Berryman. <p> Amid a hail of defensive fire, Flt Lt D J H Maltby holds Lancaster ED906/G AJ-J steady for his bomb aimer John Fort to perfectly choose his moment to release the Upkeep Bomb that would ultimately breach and destroy the Mohne Dam during the famous Dambuster raids on the Ruhr on the night of 16th / 17th May 1943. <b><p>Signed limited edition of 1150 prints. <p> Image size 12 inches x 9 inches (31cm x 23cm)
B0315. O Safe Home by Ivan Berryman. <p> Bill Townsends Lancaster O for Orange, returns safely on the morning of 17th May 1943 after the success of the daring raids on the dams of the Ruhr Valley. <b><p>Signed limited edition of 1150 prints. <p> Image size 12 inches x 9 inches (31cm x 23cm)
B0417. No Way Back by Ivan Berryman. <p> Despite crippling damage to their Lancaster ED925 (G), the crew of AJ-M continued to press home their attack on the Mohne Dam on the night of 16th/17th May 1943. With both port engines ablaze, Flt Lt J V Hopgood forced his blazing aircraft on, releasing the Upkeep bomb just precious seconds too late to strike the dam, the mine instead bouncing over the wall and onto the power station below with devastating results. ED925 attempted to recover from the maelstrom, but the fuel fire was too intense and the aircraft was tragically lost, just two of her crew managing to escape the impact to spend the rest of the war as PoWs. <b><p>Signed limited edition to 1150 prints.  <p> Size 11.5 inches x 9 inches (30cm x 23cm)
DHM1959. Raining Fire by Ivan Berryman. <p> Flying impossibly low en route to the Sorpe Dam on the night of 16th/17th May 1943 as part of Operation Chastise, Flight Sergeant Ken Brown's Lancaster ED918(G) encountered a number of German trains. On three occasions,   AJ-F's nose and tail gunners (Sgt D Allaston, front and F/Sgt G S MacDonald, rear) opened fire, pouring shells and hot tracer rounds into the lumbering locomotive and its rolling stock, wreaking havoc along the way. ED918(G) eventually arrived at the Sorpe Dam at 3.00am where it successfully released its Upkeep bomb, but without breaching the dam.  Brown and his crew returned safely, their aircraft riddled with holes, perhaps partially due to their route home taking them over the breached Mohne Dam, where they briefly exchanged gunfire with the German batteries there. <b><p>Signed limited edition of 1150 paper prints.  <p> Image size 11.5 inches x 8 inches (30cm x 21cm)
