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.<br />
<br />
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.
