Approach to the Mohne Dam by Anthony Saunders

Approach to the Mohne Dam by Anthony Saunders

Lancaster

Anthony’s painting is already hailed as a masterpiece of aviation art and one of the most authentic interpretations of the raid, capturing the moment when the fate of the Möhne dam was sealed.

The mission many thought impossible had succeeded – the Möhne Dam had been breached. The Eder would shortly follow

Richard’s stunning pencil drawing, completed on buff paper with colour highlights, depicts Lancaster AJ-F, piloted by Canadian Ken Brown, powering away from the Sorpe Dam as a huge plume of water erupts behind it. This was the second and final attack on the impenetrable dam which just a few hours earlier was attacked by ‘Johnny’ Johnson’s Lancaster AJ-T. Both aircraft scored direct hits.

Robert Taylor’s sensational new painting vividly shows the dramatic moment of impact. In the cockpit Knight and flight engineer Ray Grayston fight the controls to clear the dam, combining their physical strength to haul the lumbering Lancaster up and over the dam and to clear the high ground that lies ahead. Below and behind them, the second of Germany’s mighty western dams lies finally breached.

Dambusters - Goner 58A by Robert Taylor

Aircraft - Lancaster

The story of RAF Bomber Command’s audacious attack on the great dams of western Germany using the ingenious 'bouncing bomb', continues to inspire long after those events on the night of 16 / 17 May 1943. Few wartime missions have replicated the skill, courage and bravery demonstrated that night and the Dambusters have rightly gained legendary status.

Signed some years ago in anticipation of the 75th Anniversary

The crews of 617 Squadron that took part in the epic Dambusters raid on the night of 16/17 May 1943 were among the finest in the RAF, especially the pilots. They were the elite of Bomber Command, and when they left RAF Scampton that night, the skills of their pilots - some of the finest bomber pilots of the Second World War, would be tested to the limit.

Lancaster - 617 Squadron

The largest dam in Europe, the fortress-like walls of Möhne held back nearly 140 million cubic metres of water essential to the industry and factories of the Ruhr. The Air Ministry had long ago decided that if the Möhne dam, and the two other major Ruhr dams the Eder and Sorpe were destroyed, it could deliver a massive blow to the Nazi war machine
