History Channel documentary clips

These clips are from a History Channel documentary that would appear to have been made in 2003 for the 60th anniversary of the raid. I don’t think that it is available on DVD anywhere (please correct me if I’m wrong) so it’s good to have a substantial amount of it available online. The story of Les Knight’s last few moments always chokes me up. He saved seven other mens’ lives on the night of 16 September 1943, keeping a severely damaged aircraft aloft over the Dortmund Ems Canal while they baled out. How he didn’t get a posthumous VC for this beggars belief.

    You will find U-Bahn ceases a brief going for walks long distance apart which makes it all to easy to get around the town.
