Thread: Last Dambuster pilot passes on

    Last Dambuster pilot passes on

    Great men who we owe so much too. Although he did not join the raid due to his Lanc being hit by heavy flak over Holland he is the last of the few young men that gave their all to make sure we remain free.

    Probably not the most sensible remark given that these guys gave their all, irrespective of what has happened today.
    At least we are not all speaking German.

    From what I read earlier Les Munro never forgot those that didn't come back. He recently sold his medals to ensure that the bomber command memorial is maintained in the future.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    One of Guy Gibson hand picked team - a great pilot and New Zealander.

    Its down to each of us to remember - I shall and my kids will, let us hope others continue to refresh the national conscience of those who owe the debt.
    RIP.
