Estimate: £60 - £80 ACM Sir Ralph Alexander Cochrane, GBE, KCB, AFC handwritten letter to WW2 author Alan Cooper, with reference to 617 Sqn & AVM Slatterly. (24 February 1895 - 17 December 1977) was a British aviator and Royal Air Force officer, perhaps best known for his role in Operation Chastise, the famous "Dambusters" raid. Cochrane commanded No. 7 Group from July 1940, No. 3 Group from September 1942 and No. 5 Group from February 1943; all these Groups were in RAF Bomber Command. 5 Group became the most efficient and elite Main Force bomber group undertaking spectacular raids. Cochrane commanded the Dam-Busters raid. There was intense, sometimes openly hostile, rivalry between Cochrane and Air Vice Marshal Don Bennett, who saw Cochrane's experimentation with low-level target marking through 617 Squadron in 1944 as a direct threat to his own specialist squadrons' reputation.

Estimate: £120 - £180 Dambuster Flt Lt J F Leggo DFC typed signed letter 1975 to WW2 author Alan Cooper regarding 617 sqn. Rare autograph Navigator, Lancaster serial number: ED909 G Call sign: AJ-P, First wave. Third aircraft to attack Mohne Dam. Mine veered left after dropping and exploded at side of dam. After qualifying as a navigator, he arrived in England and was posted to 455 (Australia) Squadron, where he crewed up with Mick Martin in the autumn of 1941. Toby Foxlee and Tom Simpson joined Martin and Leggo in the crew over the next few months, and the fact that all four stayed together for almost two years illustrates the bond between them. In April 1942, 455 Squadron moved to Coastal Command, but the four Australians transferred together to 50 Squadron, a heavy bomber squadron, and retrained on Manchesters and Lancasters. They completed a tour there, and then went off separately to various training units. Leggo received a DFC for his work on the completed tour. When Martin was asked to join the new 617 Squadron, he brought his old team together as the core of the crew of AJ-P. Leggo was made the Squadron Navigation Officer, responsible for all the other navigators. After the raid, for which he received a Bar to his DFC, he carried on flying with Martin for a while, but then he put in for retraining as a pilot. Martin supported him in this, praising him for his exemplary character, loyalty, conscientiousness, and devotion to duty. 'No higher standard could be asked for, ' he added. Leggo qualified as a pilot and moved to 10 Squadron in Coastal Command, where he flew Sunderland flying boats for the rest of the war. Signs of age. Good Condition.

Estimate: £60 - £80 Dambuster Geoff Rice DFC typed signed letter 1975 on 617 Sqn Assoc. Letterhead 5 to WW2 author Alan Cooper regarding 617 sqn. He qualified as a pilot in February 1942 and was commissioned. On his return to the UK he underwent further training and was crewed up with the six other men who would eventually fly with him on the Dams Raid. They were finally posted together to 57 Squadron at RAF Scampton in February 1943 to begin operations. By the middle of March, they had undertaken nine operations, at which point they were placed in the squadron's new C Flight, under the command of Sqn Ldr Melvin Young, an experienced pilot about to embark on a first tour on Lancasters after winning a DFC and Bar for two tours on Wellingtons. By 26 March 1943 the flight comprised four crews, captained by Melvin Young, Bill Astell, Geoff Rice and Sgt Ray Lovell. It was decided to post the whole flight over to the new squadron being formed at the same base to undertake training for a special mission. Rice protested at this, but to no avail. However, the crew had gelled as an effective unit and the training for the secret operation went well. They achieved impressive scores in bomb aiming exercises and were chosen to fly in the second wave, tasked with attacking the Sorpe Dam. AJ-H took off from Scampton at 2131 and all went well for the first hour and a half of flying time. They crossed the narrow neck of Vlieland at 2259 flying very low and exactly on track. Past the danger point, Rice gained altitude briefly to check position and then went low again to turn south-eastwards towards the Ijsselmeer. The bright moon shining on the water made height difficult to judge and flight engineer Edward Smith was about to warn Rice that the altimeter was reading zero when there was a huge jolt. Instinctively Rice pulled upwards and felt another 'violent jolt'. AJ-H had hit the water twice. The first impact had torn the mine free and sprayed water up through the bomb bay. The second had forced the fixed tail wheel up through the fuselage and demolished the Elsan lavatory just in front of the rear turret. A revolting mixture of its contents, disinfectant and sea water had poured into the turret and immersed gunner Stephen Burns up to his waist. His shout of 'Christ, it's wet back here!' was pretty understandable. Everyone else was shaken up, but by some miracle the aircraft and crew had survived. Rice flew on for a minute or two while the damage was assessed, and it was confirmed that the mine had been lost. Then he turned for home. The anti-aircraft batteries on both Vlieland and Texel were waiting for him and sprayed flak across the gap between the two islands, but he sped underneath the fire. There was nearly another tragedy as they reached Scampton. The hydraulic fluid in the undercarriage had been depleted, so it had to be manually lowered with an air bottle. This took 20 minutes during which time Rice was circling the airfield at 1000 feet. Uncertain whether the flaps would then work, another warning message was sent to the control tower, and the crew prepared for an emergency landing. Rice and Smith remained in their seats while the rest sat with their backs to the main spar, facing aft. They were just about to make their approach when suddenly Les Munro's AJ-W, which had lost its radio, flew in below them and landed on the main runway. Rice held off, and touched down a few minutes later. The next day, Gibson quizzed him over the cause of the loss of his mine, but took no further action. He knew from his own experiences in training how difficult it could be to judge an aircraft's height when flying low over water. Rice flew on the operations to Italy in July and August, and was then selected for the very dangerous attack on the Dortmund-Ems canal with the new 10, 000lb 'thin case' bomb in September 1943. Of the eight pilots who flew on that raid, only Geoff Rice, Mick Martin and David Shannon survived. In appalling weather conditions, Rice spent 70 minutes searching for the target but was eventually ordered home by Martin, who had taken over temporary command of the operation. He jettisoned his giant bomb over the Waddensee. On 11 November he took part in an attack on the Antheor viaduct, and later that month was awarded the DFC. The citation singled out his work at the Dortmund-Ems canal, praising his 'great determination and courage. ' On 20 December, eight 617 Squadron crews, led by the new CO Leonard Cheshire, were sent on an operation to attack an armaments factory in Liege in Belgium. Geoff Rice and his Dams Raid crew were amongst them. The target marking wasn't visible, so Cheshire ordered the crews to return with their bombs. However, Rice and his crew were unlucky and were hit by flak 14, 000 feet above Merbes-Le Chateau. The last thing Rice remembered was giving the order to bale out. Unfortunately, there wasn't time and the aircraft exploded. Rice appears to have been thrown clear, protected by the pilot's armoured seat and with his parachute deployed, but all his colleagues died as it crashed. Their bodies were found near the crash site, but Rice regained consciousness in a wood, his parachute snagged in a tree, and with a broken wrist. The first people he met were three farm labourers, who took him to the Resistance. His wrist was set in plaster by a friendly doctor, and he spent the next five months on the run. Unfortunately, he was then betrayed to the secret police and became a prisoner of war, ending up at the notorious Stalag Luft III, scene of the Great Escape. As the Russian army approached, the prisoners were forcibly moved, but were eventually liberated by the Americans. Rice was repatriated after the war, and left the RAF in 1947. He went on to work for Shell BP and was very active in setting up the 617 Squadron Association. Signs of age. Good Condition. All signed pieces come with a Certificate of Authenticity.
