Letter tribute to war hero.
Guy Gibson, leader of the famous Dambuster raid used to be a regular at the Dun Cow in The Green, Dunchurch.
According to one letter, Gibson set up meetings to plan the attacks in the pub and in another, to his brother Alick, he asks him to suggest a date for a few pints at the Dun Cow.
Gibson lived in Fareham Avenue, in Hillmorton, Rugby, before the Second World War and the Dun Cow became a regular haunt for the two brothers.
The letter to his brother has now been framed and displayed at the inn as a lasting tribute after Gibson's nephew, Mike Gibson, presented the frame to landlady Florrie D'Arcy.
Mike Gibson said: "It's a nice tribute to Guy."
