About the Anniversary of the Dambuster Mission Lincs
to be held Thursday 16th May, 2013.
Talented Lincoln students took their place in the history books when they opened a spectacular memorial to mark the 70th anniversary of the famous Dambusters raid. The World War Two mission of 1943, codenamed Operation Chastise, resulted in the destruction of two German dams by 617 Squadron from RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire. It marked a significant moment in the war effort, as well as Britain’s engineering and military history. On Thursday 16th May 2013, it was commemorated by a special collaboration between the Royal Air Force, the University of Lincoln’s School of Performing Arts and BBC Radio Lincolnshire.
