Operation Chastise - the Dambusters Raid.

All rip-roaring, bollocky, boys' own stuff, involving pieces of wood, secret weapons, Nazis and a politically incorrect dog. This is Enid Blyton on acid, and quite probably the Crabs' second most finest hour.

Unfortunately, historic revisionism has relegated Bomber Command's efforts to little more than state-sanctioned genocide - compounded somewhat by 617 Squadron's boss's ill-conceived choice of name for his Labrador. Ho hum.

"Da da da da dada da da" etc. Screw the revisionists ... Sir Barnes Neville Wallis Rules!
