Other notably successful missions flying their Avro Lancaster bombers included precision raids on the mighty German battleship Tirpitz, U-boat pens, railways, V-weapons sites, canals and bridges. Through their skill and bravery 617 Sqn. crews received many high honours including VC's for Wing Commander Guy Gibson and Wing Commander Leonard Cheshire.
by at least two 617 Sqn Pilots and four other 617 aircrew.
