With Wing Commander Guy Gibson drawing fire to his starboard side, Squadron Leader 'Dinghy' Young, flying Lancaster AJ-A, completes his attack on the Möhne Dam during Operation Chastise, 16 / 17 May 1943.

To perpetuate the legend of the Dambusters, Anthony has once again created a stunning work depicting the scene at ‘Target X’ – the codename originally given to the Möhne dam.

Printed onto borders that were personally signed over many years, each copy carries the authentic autographs of six highly-regarded veterans who took part in Operation Chastise on the night of 16 / 17 May 1943. Since signing, most have sadly passed away giving even greater meaning to this print release which provides both aviation art and Dambuster enthusiasts a remarkable collector’s piece to be cherished.
