Members of the 97 Squadron Association went to Thorpe Camp Visitor Centre for their annual reunion on Saturday.

They took the opportunity to pause beside the centre’s war memorial.

The squadron transferred from Coningsby to RAF Woodhall in March 1942 and, the following year, transferred to Bourne in Cambridgeshire, leaving three crews as a nucleus for what was to become The Dambusters.
