Dambusters - The Dash for Home

Dambusters - The Dash for Home by Stephen Brown

Having crossed Germany and Holland at full throttle and tree top height, Bill Townsend’s Lancaster evades the German coastal gun batteries and heads out over the North Sea and homewards.

Tasked with attacking the Ennepe Dam, Bill Townsend’s Lancaster AJ-O was actually in the air the longest of any taking part in the raid and he was subsequently awarded the Conspicuous Gallantry Medal for valour.

The painting is signed on the back in permanent marker by the following 617 Squadron veterans:
George ‘Johnny’ Johnson DFM
 (Bomb Aimer on Dambuster AJ-T which attacked  the Sorpe Dam)

Squadron Leader L S ‘Benny’ Goodman
 (617 Squadron Pilot who took part in the Tirpitz raid)

Flt. Lt. Murray R. Valentine (Wireless Operator 617 Squadron)

Flt. Lt. Arthur Poore D.F.C. (Pilot 617 Squadron)

F/ O Basil Fish (Navigator 617 Squadron)
