Dambusters memorial

Dambusters memorial
The Dambuster Memorial erected in 1987, serves memory to the heroes of 617 Squadron. The monument stands in Royal Square, formally the site of the Royal Hydro Hotel and Winter Gardens which were both destroyed by a bomb in 1943.
--
617 Squadron, RAF, “The Dambusters” was a single squadron formed during the Second World War to carry out a single special and dangerous task. That operation “Chastise” has since become a legend in the annals of military history and it possess all the traditionally admired military attributes of originality, surprise and heroism coupled with a very dramatic outcome. Operation Chastise has in many ways overshadowed the later exploits of the men who formed the squadron.
