Dambusters 2022

"Not only will this event raise vital funds to support RAF personnel, past and present, it will also pay tribute to the brave men of Bomber Command who made the ultimate sacrifice on the Dambusters raid and throughout the Second World War. Their loss must never be forgotten and it is my hope through this event, a new generation will learn about the cost of the freedom they enjoy today."

Squadron Leader Johnny Johnson, MBE / last surviving original member of No. 617 Squadron RAF and of Operation Chastise, the "Dambusters" raid of 1943
