Philip E. West - Enemy Coast Ahead - Dambusters Avro Lancaster
Avro Lancaster 617 Squadron Dambusters RAF Aircraft Blank Greetings Card by Philip E. West GAvA
Lancasters of 617
Squadron, led by Wing Commander Guy Gibson begin their low level cross channel
dash towards the enemy coast on their way to the heart of the Ruhr. The
aircraft were arranged in three waves. Eight aircraft failed to return, a high
cost indeed but the courage and determination with which the raid was carried
out was in the highest tradition of the RAF.
