70 years ago, nineteen Lancaster Bombers from 617 Squadron took off from RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire to participate in the most daring of missions - Operation Chastise. Or as it has become known The Dambusters Raid.
Now you have the opportunity to celebrate one of the RAF’s most famous squadrons with The RAF 617 Squadron Limited Edition 22 Carat Gold Collector Card.
Officially approved by the RAF, your limited edition Collector Card includes four Royal Mail First Class Union Flag stamps with accompanying labels featuring ‘The Opening Shots’, the superb Dambuster painting by Mark Postlethwaite, and the 617 Squadron badge. The stamps have been officially postmarked by Royal Mail on 29th June - Armed Forces Day 2013.
Finished in 22 Carat Gold
To make this Collector Card particularly special, it has been completed with 22 Carat Gold Foil and is presented in its own Presentation Folder with an accompanying Certificate of Authenticity, ensuring that it will forever remain a valuable heirloom to pass down to your children and grandchildren.
