Eighty years ago, on the night of 17-18th August 1943, three waves of RAF Bomber Command aircraft, totalling 596 bombers, took off from their bases in England to attack the important German scientific research centre and rocket development site at Peenemunde on the Baltic coast of Germany. The raid, codenamed Operation Hydra, was to be of great significance and was very costly to Bomber Command, especially to the aircraft and crews of the third wave.
