The final seconds on 17th May 1943 as the bouncing bomb of Flight Lt. Maltby's Lancaster Squadron breached the giant Mohne dam. Probably your last chance to buy a Dambusters print with these signatures. Flt. Sgt. George Chalmers DFC, DFM (flew on AJ-O), Sqn. Ldr. Jerry Fray DFC (Spitfire PRU pilot who took the aerial photos of the dams before and after the raids), Cpl. Ron Barton - fitter for 617 Sqn. Lancasters, Harold Roddis, Flight Mechanic for Geoff Rice and Guy Gibson; Victor Gill, Flight Mechanic for Bill Astell and 'Dinghy Young, and Richard Todd OBE who played W/Cdr. Guy Gibson in the legendary film, "The Dam Busters."

Philip writes, " Primary Target was a challenge to paint in more ways than one! It is the largest canvas I have ever painted and technically the most demanding. The fantastic response from collectors though has more than made up for the hours (around 6 weeks worth!) I put into the painting. We took the still unfinished original painting along to the July air show at Duxford and sold it on the first day and even took orders for 70 prints that at that time were still unpublished. To top everything we have been fortunate to have the prints signed by some key 617 Sqdn. members, the Spitfire pilot who took the aerial photos of the dam, plus Richard Todd OBE. "Primary Target" has proved to be an altogether amazing and enjoyable experience and a print that I hope will bring you a great deal of pleasure and satisfaction."
