“I’d Do It Again” Says Surviving British Dambuster

Posted on January 17, 2018

The name “Dambuster” is the nickname given to 617 Sqn of the Royal Air Force. The raid in 1943, Operation Chastise, aimed to breach the Mohne, Eder and Sorpe dams in the Rhur valley. The attack used Barnes Wallis’s revolutionary “bouncing bomb” purposely designed for the mission. While the Mohne and Eder dams were breached, the Sorpe dam was only damaged. 617 Sqn draw their motto from the raid, “Apres Moi, Le Deluge”: After Me, The Flood
