A Lucky Escape by Ivan Berryman. (PC)


A Lucky Escape by Ivan Berryman. (PC)

Flying low across the North Sea en route to the Sorpe Dam on the night of 16th/17th May 1943 as part of Operation Chastise, Flying Officer Geoff Rice's Lancaster ED936(G) clipped a large wave, ripping the Upkeep bomb from its mountings and pitching the aircraft into the sea. Somehow, in just a split second, Rice managed to haul AJ-H back into the air, but the aircraft had ingested a huge amount of water and, as Rice put his Lancaster into a climb to head back to Scampton, rear gunner Sgt S Burns and his turret were almost swept away as the water rushed to the back of the aircraft. AJ-H returned to Scampton otherwise unscathed and took no further part in the Dams Raids.

Resplendent in the morning sunrise, the Avro Lancaster sits majestically.  One could almost believe it is a wild animal sniffing the air, secure in its natural habitat.  Watching the scene, the total silence is occasionally broken by the chink of a dropped spanner, a young voice expresses a solved problem, fresh human silhouettes materialise through the mist from behind a massive wheel, we realise how many people are actually there.  These are not pilots or navigators or gunners.  They are fitters, armourers and mechanics, working as a team, every individual with his or her own duty fulfilling a common purpose, to get the aircraft ready for its next sortie that evening.
Morning Glory by Robin Smith.
£60.00
 Immediately following their devastating attack on the Mohne Dam, the specially modified Lancasters of 617 Squadron successfully breach the second of Germanys mighty western dams - the Eder, on the night of 16th / 17th May 1943.  After hitting the target with pinpoint precision, pilot Les Knight and Flight Engineer Ray Grayston battle with the controls of Lancaster AJ-N in order to clear the high ground beyond the dam as a torrent of water erupts into the valley below them; the wall of the Eder Dam is rent apart and collapses.
