Welcome to the Dambusters blog

I’ve set this blog up as a service to anyone interested in the exploits of the RAF’s famous Dambusters, 617 Squadron, during the Second World War.

The reason for my personal interest is because my uncle was David Maltby, the pilot of aircraft AJ-J, J for Johnny, on the Dams Raid on 16-17 May 1943. His was the fifth aircraft to attack the Möhne Dam and the mine it dropped was the one which caused the final breach, and its destruction.

I have written about David and his crew in my newly published book, Breaking the Dams, which is described on the related website here.
