Deep in the heart of Lincolnshire lives Anna Haworth, photographer extraordinaire. She has a particular fascination with all things aeronautical, and most especially the Dambusters. There are loads of pictures on her Flickr page, which you can see here. And here is the link to her Dambusters collection, which contains stunning shots from trips over the Derwent dam, atmospheric pictures from the Petwood Hotel, the collections at Metheringham, East Kirkby, Scampton and Coningsby, to name just a few. Plus some other oddities that she has come across, such as the decorated scooter shown above.
Do you know if anyone is still alive who was in 617 squadron during WWII? My grandpa joined after the dambusters raid, but was involved in the tipitz raid, he died before I was born and my Grnadma died a few years ago so would love to find if there is anyone who was in the squadron at the same time as him. Do you know where I can find this out?
I have just cropped and ‘improved the contrast’ on a fading photograph I took of a Lancaster on a pedestal, in Toronto Canada, in 1966. If you would like me to forward it to you, please let me know your procedure–Philip Croft
