Description

Following a short but intense period of training, the volunteer group of crack airmen who made up the new RAF No.617 Squadron took off from RAF Scampton on the night of 16th/17th May 1943, at the start of the most audacious bombing raid in history.

Led by their enigmatic and inspirational commanding officer Guy Gibson, he is reputed to have said, ‘This squadron will either make history, or it will be completely wiped out’, but nevertheless, every man was determined to play their part in this historic raid. Nineteen ‘Special’ Lancaster’s and their crews sent a message to the German nation that could not be disguised by their propaganda ministers.
