"Dambusters Breaching The Eder Dam" the Tribute edition with original pencil drawing by Robert Taylor. Following the breaching of the Mohne Dam, Guy Gibson lead the three remaining Lancaster's with bombs to the Eder Dam. The topography around the Eder Dam was very challenging with high ridges all around. Pilots Dave Shannon and Henry Maudslay struggled to align on the dam, both released their bombs but the dam held.

The third and last remaining armed Lancaster flown by Les Knight failed to align for a correct bomb drop on the first run. The second bomb run was very favorable and the bomb hit with a tremendous explosion breaching the dam. Knight and his flight engineer Ray Grayston fought the controls to clear the dam and ridges.

The print is signed by six, 617 Squadron crew who took part in the Dam raids. Ray Grayston, George Johnson, Les Munro, Fred Sutherland, Ken Lucas and Grant McDonald.
