Dambuster - M: Mother

'Dambuster M-Mother' the story of Lancaster pilot Flt Lt John 'Hoppy' Hopgood, second in command to Guy Gibson, who died just 21yrs of age at the Mohne Dam on 17th May 1943.

The lecture, by his niece Jenny Elmes, will tell how Guy evolved from a sensitive peace-loving child, to a dauntless Dambuster who kept his burning AJ Lanc flying against all odds, allowing two of his crew to escape with their lives.

Jenny will also mention his other 48 bombing raids.
