This is a specially produced bookplate featuring an original pencil drawing with white highlights on recycled sepia card. Underneath the drawing is the professionally mounted pencil signature of Mick Martin. The bookplate will fit most books on the Dambusters and would transform a standard copy into a highly collectable version.

Martin took part in the "Dambusters" raid on the night of 16/17 May 1943. He piloted the Lancaster bomber AJ-P "Popsie" (officially known as AJ-P "Peter") in the first formation, which was assigned to attack the Möhne Dam in Western Germany. Martin's plane was hit by anti-aircraft fire during the attack, but he successfully accomplished the bombing run and returned. He was awarded a Distinguished Service Order (DSO) for his actions. Martin was considered one of the best pilots in the squadron and was a low level specialist.
