This documentary touched me so much, these guys were 18-22 years old and they did what they needed to do to defend the UK, from the Nazi onslaught,
I salute you sirs for your service, we will never forget what you did for us, although the UK has gone to s**t for the last few years, your sacrifice will never be forgotten.
From the team behind SPITFIRE comes LANCASTER, the story of the iconic WW2 bomber told through the words of the last surviving crew members, re-mastered archive material and extraordinary aerial footage of the RAF's last airworthy Lancaster. Responsible for some of the most famous and infamous missions in WW2 history, from the Dambuster raids to the controversial bombing of Dresden, the Lancaster would help turn the tide of war. But there was a deadly price to be paid. 55,000 young men - half of all Bomber Command's aircrew - died over Nazi occupied Europe. Their average age was just 22. LANCASTER is an epic and poignant story of courage, fear, friendship and the moral complexities of war.
