Sub-Type: 617 Squadron Dambusters signed Object: photo
Type: Military Options: signed Dambuster

This is a photograph of and signed by the following 'Dambuster' ace that took part in the famous Dambusters raid of 16th May 1943.

The photo is autographed in pen by the following rare Dambuster:

Squadron Leader George 'Johnny' Johnson DFM:

 He went initially to the USA for pilot training. Frustrated at not qualifying and a burning desire to get airborne Johnny applied for the shortest possible training course; air gunner. Having completed this course successfully Johnny was posted to 97 Squadron as 'spare' gunner – mid or upper, whichever was needed.

At this time Bomb Aimers were being sought for the Lancasters and as this position warranted extra pay, Johnny applied and passed the training course. He was then chosen by Joe McCarthy to join his crew before they were all transferred to 617 Squadron. Flying in AJ-T, with American pilot Joe McCarthy and crew they attacked the Sorpe Dam from 30 feet, for which Johnny was awarded the DFM.

Johnny went on to fly 40 missions with Joe McCarthy at the controls. George retired from the RAF in 1962.

The photo is in v/good condition .
