Discover what it was really like to serve as part of Bomber Command during the Second World War. Former pilot George Dunn will speak with co-author Steve Darlow about his wartime journey, from joining as a novice airman to taking part in highly dangerous operational duties.
Bomber Command pilot George Dunn DFC LdH completed 44 operations during the Second World War. George flew his first tour in 1943, on Handley Page Halifax bombers, during one of the most intense periods of the bombing war. Following two trips as a second pilot with No 10 Squadron, to gain operational experience, George then flew with No 76 Squadron crew from May to October 1943, taking part in the Battle of the Ruhr, the Battle of Hamburg and the raid against the German secret weapon research station at Peenemünde. On completion of his tour, and a period as an instructor pilot, George then took up duties flying de Havilland Mosquitos, firstly with No 608 Squadron and then with No 1409 Met Flight.
