"Operation Chastise"


Recommended Posts

Surprised nobody has mentioned it since it was on the news today; 65 years this evening since "Operation Chastise", set off for Germany; and so the Dambusters were born.

 

 

617 were formed on march 24th 1943 as a precision bombing unit under the command of Guy Gibson who led the dams raid from which the famous 617 motto "apres moi le deluge" was derived.
