Run by ‘Bomber Harris’, it was instrumental in us gaining victory over Germany and he gave us a rundown on how this was achieved.

He highlighted the importance of the Lancaster Bomber and how it enabled the raid on the Ruhr dams to successfully take place and how it was the only plane capable of carrying a four ton bomb (The Tall Boy).
