AA1 Consolidated B-24 Liberator ( RAF Coastal Command ) Photograph signed by Squadron Leader Terence M Bulloch DSO* DFC*

Each photo measures 5" by 7" with a white border on all sides with the signature handsigned on the specially elongated bottom margin.
The photograph is from the 1939-1945 period and has been reproduced and then signed by Squadron Leader Terence M Bulloch DSO* DFC*.
This signed photo forms part of a limited edition of Allied Aircraft photographs. This is number 1 in the new series, produced by ourselves. Each photograph has been handsigned and they are all numbered and certified on the reverse. Each photograph is a limited edition of 100.   

The photograph shows Liberators of 120 Squadron Coastal Command being equipped and serviced in between sorties. The Liberator is distinctive as it has the TV aerial like protusions from the wings which were part of the radar equipment used for detecting U-Boats.  This photograph was probably taken in late 1941at RAF Nutts Corner. This photograph would make the perfect companion to the Corgi Aviation Archive 120 Squadron Liberator.
   
 
 Squadron Leader Terence M. Bulloch DSO* DFC*
RAF Coastal Command U-boat 'ace' sinker

Bulloch was born in Lisburn, Co Antrim on 19 February 1916 and educated at Campbell College, Belfast. He was commissioned as an Acting Pilot Officer on 25 January 1937 and after completing his training was posted to 206 Squadron. Bulloch was awarded a DFC and Mentioned in Despatches while flying Hudsons of 206 Squadron. He joined the Atlantic Ferry Unit, bringing a number of Liberators across from the USA.
In August 1941 he joined 120 Squadron, the first to be equipped with Liberators, and made his first attack on a submarine in October 1941. On 16 August 1942 Bulloch attacked and damaged U-89 badly enough for it to return to base for repairs, and two days later attacked and damaged U-653 which also returned to base. He was awarded a bar to his DFC for sinking U-597 on 12 October 1942.
On the 5 November he and his crew sighted a U-boat which dived before they could attack, but shortly afterwards they sighted, attacked and badly damaged U-89 for a second time. They also attacked a third U-boat but with no apparent success. Bulloch was awarded the DSO on 1 December 1942. On the 8 December in the space of 5 hours he made 8 sightings and 7 attacks. He left the squadron at the end of the year, receiving the bar to his DSO on the 1 January 1943. During his time with 120 Squadron he had sighted 23 U-boats and attacked 16 of them.
He then spent time as an instructor and also testing anti-submarine weapons, he was then given a roving commission and he and his crew were attached to 244 Squadron in July 1943 testing new rockets, torpedos and mines. On 8 July he attacked and sank U-514 off Cape Finisterre with these new weapons.
On 20 July 1944 while flying with No 86 Squadron, his Liberator was spotted by U-636, and the U-boat opened fire severely damaging Bulloch’s aircraft and forcing him to return to base on two engines. His official U-boat 'tally' is 4 confirmed kills and 2 damaged. Post war he flew as a commercial airline pilot.
