Description
WW2 Midget Submarines Godfrey Place VC signed A4 copy of the two attempted attacks by him on the Tirpitz rare from 617 sqn Dambuster historian Jim Shortland collection. Rear Admiral Basil Charles Godfrey Place, VC, CB, CVO, DSC On 22 September 1943 at KÃ¥fjord, North Norway, Lieutenant Place, commanding Midget Submarine X7, and another lieutenant (Donald Cameron) commanding Midget Submarine X.6, carried out a most daring and successful attack on the German Battleship Tirpitz. The two submarines had to travel at least 1,000 miles from base, negotiate a mine-field, dodge nets, gun defences and enemy listening posts. Having eluded all these hazards they finally placed the charges underneath the ship where they went off an hour later, doing so much damage that Tirpitz was out of action for months. Good Condition. All autographs are genuine hand signed and come with a Certificate of Authenticity. We combine postage on multiple winning lots and can ship worldwide. UK postage from £4.99, EU from £6.99, Rest of World from £8.99.
