On the anniversary of the famous Dambuster raid, Somerset artist Mike Fuller has stepped in to raise money for 617 Squadron Association, which keeps alive the history of the famous squadron. Mike has produced two limited-edition prints and for every one sold a donation will be made to the Association.

Says Mike, ‘For many years I was an aircraft illustrator with BAC at Brooklands and used to walk by replicas of the grand slam and tall boy bombs that 617 Squadron used on their famous raids.Since then I have turned my technical illustrator skills into producing highly detailed prints of famous aircraft, ships and motorcars.I am particularly proud that I have been given to opportunity to produce prints of Johnny Johnson’s Aircraft T-Tommy, which was involved in the famous raid. He has even signed a few prints, which we will be offering over the next few weeks.’

The second print Mike has produced is of Laurence (Benny) Goodman’s Lancaster, which attacked the Arnsberg viaduct on 19 March 1945.‘Benny has signed this print,’ says Mike, ‘so to have two famous Veterans endorsing my work is fantastic.’

The artist-signed prints, which are limited to 1,000 of each and include the Association’s ‘dams’ logo, can be obtained direct from Mike and money from each will be donated to the 617 Squadron Association.A4 prints cost £25 plus posting and packing, and A3 prints £35 plus p&p. 

If you wish to purchase a print, please email profileprintsgallery@gmail.com or call 01643 821782 and leave a message.
