The RAF Benevolent Fund has launched a new fundraising challenge to mark the anniversary of the formation of 617 Squadron – the RAF squadron best known for its role in Operation Chastise, also known as the Dambusters raid. The raid, an attack on three dams in Germany's Ruhr Valley, involved 133 aircrew flying 19 specially adapted Lancaster bombers.
