60th Anniversary of the lengendary Dam Buster Raid hand signed by flight engineer Flying Officer Ray Grayston who took part on the raid attacking the Eder Dam on the 16/17 May 1943

To mark the 60th Anniversary of the Dams Raid carried out by No 617 Squadron on 16/17 May 1943 equipped with specially modified Lancasters fitted with Barnes Wallis' remarkable bouncing bomb we are releasing what will be the most popular cover we have so far issued, with stunning artwork and superb signatures. The top part of the artwork shows Lancaster 'AJ-A' flown by Squadron Leader H Young about to prepare to make his attack, while the lower half of the artwork shows Wing Commander Guy Gibson and his crew boarding Lancaster 'AJ-G'. The raid was a great success and a great moral boast for the Allied war effort and immortalised in the film 'the Dam Busters' released in the mid-1950s. 

The cover bears the £2 Isle of Man Dambuster stamp from a painting by Robert Taylor, cancelled on the first day of issue with Isle of Man special postmark. Cover bears 'flown in 617 Squadron Tornado' Gold Label on front with flight details on a special insert card inside the cover. The covers have been flown six times including a flight in a Tornado of No 617 Squadron,  in Vickers VC 10, XV102, named 'Guy Gibson VC' of No 10 Squadron, reflown over the Mohne Dam and were even flown in BBMF Lancaster PA 474. 

The cover has been personally signed by Flying Officer R E Grayston who was the Flight Engineer on Les Knight's crew aboard AJ-N for Nuts which attacked the Eder Dam.

Only 200 of these covers have been signed by Grayston in 2003 to mark the 60th Anniversary of the Dams Raid. Numbered and certified on reverse.

Flying Officer Ray Grayston

 
Sergeant Ray Grayston took part in ‘Operation Chastise’ as the Flight Engineer on Pilot Officer Les Knight’s Lancaster ED912, ‘AJ-N’, which attacked the Eder Dam. On 15/16 September 1943 during a raid on the Dortmund-Ems Canal, flying low-level in poor visibility their aircraft hit trees and lost the two port engines and crew were forced to bale out. Grayston became a POW and was sent to Stalag Luft III.
