The Dambusters

13 January 2019

We have on display a uniform which belonged to Flight Sergeant, Ft/Sgt, Stephen Burns who was the rear gunner of Lancaster Bomber ED936 from 617 Squadron, Call Sign ‘H for Harry’.

 

 

  Stephen Burns took part in the ‘Dambusters’ Raid on the 16th-17th May 1943.  Their mission was to attack the Scorpe Dam.  Unfortunately ‘H for Harry’ didn’t get as far at the dam and had to return to the base after clipping the sea and loosing their ‘bouncing bomb’.
