Operation Chastise was an attack on German dams carried out on 16–17 May 1943 by Royal Air Force No. 617 Squadron


So, 70 years ago the 19 Lancs of 617 took off; 8 were shot down, 53 aircrew killed and 3 aircrew taken prisoner. Around 1,600 died following the breaching of the Möhne and Edersee dams. I'm not sure it was worth it or how much difference it made, but be gad it was an amazing raid.

Of the survivors, only 4 are still alive. My hat, to them, is tipped.
