70th ANNIVERSARY OF THE DAMBUSTERS RAID: The Lancaster Bomber is the hero of the audacious Dambuster raid in the German Ruhr Valley in 1943. This exceptional aircraft was a milestone in the development of heavy bombers, able to carry heavier bombs and drop them with greater accuracy than any before it - many believe that Britain would not have won the war without it. In a letter to the head of Avro after the war, Marshal of the Royal Air Force Sir Arthur Harris, the Commander in Chief of Bomber Command, said of the Lancaster: “I would say this to those who placed that shining sword in our hands: Without your genius and efforts we could not have prevailed, for I believe that the Lancaster was the greatest single factor in winning the war.”

Fearlessly led by Wing Commander Guy Gibson, RAF Squadron 617 and their Lancaster Bombers soared into the annals of military history as the legendary ‘Dambusters’ in Operation Chastise, successfully destroying critical dams behind enemy lines in a daring and heroic mission. The recent 70th anniversary commemoration of this extraordinary feat demonstrates the awe and respect still felt by many for this remarkable aircraft and those who flew her - now, you too can honour their memory with a limited edition coin set dedicated to Guy Gibson and the mighty Avro Lancaster.

An informative, individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity is included FREE of charge with this set, as does a wooden display box.
