Although things are a little quiet right now, it’s been a great year for the Dambusters Blog – many thousands of new readers, and a record number of posts. The main event of course was the 70th anniversary of the Dams Raid, and the interest that this generated was almost overwhelming.
So – greetings of the season to all readers! And many thanks to all of you, especially those who have taken the trouble to add your comments or contact me by email.
I promise that things will get busier in the New Year, and that the Dambuster of the Day articles will finally reach a conclusion. The last one will be No. 133, Sgt Arthur Buck. (By one of those odd coincidences, I actually met a great nephew of Arthur Buck at Scampton on the day of the anniversary, but omitted to get his details from him. So if you are him, or know him, then please get in touch!)
Happy Christmas, Charles. Going in for Open-Heart sugery after New Yearm so hope to be much more mobile afterwards! In regular touch with cousin Simon (Wainwright) in Oz on Skype. Best regards and Good Luck for 2014, David (Chamberlin)
Merry Christmas, Charles. Thank you for all you’ve done on the Dambister Blog and do you have a contact for Les Munro because I read where he and Dad were together at the Bomb trials.
A Merry Christmas to you and your Charles and looking forward to the completion of Dambuster of the Day, keep in touch
Many thanks for all your hard work over the year. I am sure that I am one of the very many who have much appreciated the effort put in to the ‘Dambusters blog’. I hope to visit Scampton and the museum later this coming year when I am over in the UK, plus have lunch at the pub! With thanks and very best wishes for 2014 to you and to all Dambusters/617 fans.
