Went to the 100th anniversary celebration of the RAF at the space and science museum in Virginia a few weeks ago. Some guy who was a pilot of the Lancaster bombers gave a quick talk. Said he used to play for Dulwich Hamlet. Spitfires were supposed to be there but only one Bomber made it and it could only taxi around because of the low cloud cover

My father was a first officer at the end of the war on lancasters. His job was to get the aircraft to its destination then pop to the pod at the front whilst telling the pilot left a bit right a bit for the bombs. I never knew that he was an officer until his funeral when the eulogies were read out from crew. Seems he would often prefer the company of the crew rather than the officers. One of my big regrets was not knowing and talking to him about all that stuff.

I would of hoped that Dan Snow & Paul Beavor would of spoken about the history more.
I went to a talk recently in Southampton from the pair of them about the spitfire factory in Woolston, very interesting and Paul Beavor is incredibly knowledgable.

Very well done
Such brave men
Didn't realise how many didn't come back
Glad to see Johnny Johnson got his Lancaster bomber flight over derwent
These guys were just youngsters when they flew
We owe them everything

I recommend anyone who hasn't, to visit Derwent (or the German dams if you are able) and just stand there and think about flying towards it at 60 feet about the water level in a Lancaster

You have to suspend belief because it really doesn't seem possible

Brave men, one and all
