Title

Rupert the bear mascot

Description

A black corduroy teddy bear with a red bow tie and red paws. Rupert was made for his daughter from material left over from making a coat; but it became Ernie Twells' lucky charm. The bear accompanied him on 65 operations with 617 and 619 Squadrons, including three attacks on the Nazi Battleship, Tirpitz.
