Probably the most famous RAF
Squadron in history, mainly due to the audacious Dambuster raid in 1943.
Other notably successful missions flying their Avro Lancaster bombers
included precision raids on the mighty German battleship Tirpitz, U-boat
pens, railways, V-weapons sites, canals and bridges. Through their skill
and bravery 617 Sqn. crews received many high honours including V.C's for
Wing Commander Guy Gibson and Wing Commander Leonard Cheshire.
Signed by at least two 617 Sqn. pilots and four other 617 aircrew. The Artist Proofs and Remarques are also signed by Wing Commander W. Tait DSO*** DFC* and Sqn Ldr. Tony Iveson DFC - a total of eight 617 Sqn. signatures.
