In 1943, RAF Squadron 617 carried out the raid known as Operation Chastise. Using specially developed bouncing bombs, the operation breached two major German dams which triggered mass flooding in the Ruhr valley and was a crucial development in the Allies' victory. The heroic mission prompted the 1955 classic film The Dam Busters, based on the two books written by Guy Gibson. Gibson has since become cemented in the minds of the public as one of thegreatest heroes to emerge from the war. His efforts were rewarded when he was honoured with a Victoria Cross medal in 1943.The auction will be highlighted by a Gibson signed flight log book. The log book details the flights of Flight Sergeant Leslie Edward Tozer from 1942-1950. It was signed by Gibson as commander of Tozer's squadron, shortly before he was selected to lead Operation Chastise. Currently selling at 348, the piece offers great value to collectors and an opportunity to own a distinctive piece of wartime history. Now is the time to invest in the hero; Guy Gibson autographed memorabilia is set for asharp increase in value when a remake of The Dam Busters film is eventually released.The log book will be joined at auction by two fantastic Gibson-signed photographs of Lancaster Bombers, with the names of the crew that flew on the raid written beneath.
