Le Creusot Raid, 17 October 1942

The Le Creusot operation in daylight on 17 October 1942 was one of the most daring of several Bomber Command raids flown that year which were perhaps as much concerned with PR and morale as with military strategy. See: Le Creusot Raid of 17 October 1942

One of those flying on the op was Ernest Deverill, above, the epitome of courageous and newsworthy pilots.
