A just chastisement. - Wemyss's Appalling Hobby:
From the Party Guilty of Committing 'Gate of Ivory, Gate of Horn'
A just chastisement.

Honour the memory, courage, and sacrifice of No. 617 Squadron, RAF: ‘Après moi, le déluge’.

(Now to see if FGW can manage to get me up to Town, and TfL manage to get me to Lord’s. And England manage not to lose this Test, of course.)

Thanks for this, my dad was a bomb engineer for 617 Squadron. Missed out on being a pilot due to a change in his vision just before finals.

Thank you for this also. [My dad was a paratrooper, he lives. His brother the ranger didn't].

There needs to be a like button for things like this. :)

I seem to recall there being a modern version of the Dambusters film proposed, but I know not what became of it. Perhaps the name of Guy Gibson's dog and the code-word it imparted to the mission made the film company lawyers tremble.
