Help us honour SSAFA's connection to the famous 'Dambusters'

As 617 Squadron prepares to disband next year, we're looking for stories from squadron members past and present and their families.


Help us honour SSAFA's connection to the famous 'Dambusters'

In April 2014, the famous ‘Dambusters’ 617 Squadron will disband in preparation for the arrival of the RAF’s fifth generation Lightning II fighter aircraft. 617 Squadron will then reform and will be the first operational squadron using Lightning II aircraft in 2016.

To mark this special moment in the squadron's history, we would very much like to honour SSAFA’s connection with 617 Squadron and the heroic story of the 'Dambusters' over the past 60 years.

We would love to hear from serving, ex-serving and honorary members of 617 Squadron and their families who also have a story to tell about how SSAFA has made a difference in their lives. Whether SSAFA has given you some extra support in a time of need, or you have supported us as a volunteer thenshare your story with us by filling out our online form.
