The last surviving Dambusters pilot is to sell his gallantry medals awarded for the legendary raid and donate the proceeds to the Bomber Command Memorial fund.
Squadron Leader Les Munro hopes to raise £50,000 from the sale which will go towards the upkeep of the newly-built memorial dedicated to the 55,573 airmen killed during the Second World War.
