The gallantry medals of one of the hero's of the Dambusters' raid have been unearthed 75 years after the famous mission and are tipped to sell for £150,000.<br />
<br />
Flying Officer George 'Jock' Chalmers was a wireless operator in the last Lancaster bomber to make it back to Britain following the famous 1943 raid.<br />
<br />
Of the 133 crew who took part in the incredibly risky mission to destroy several dams in Germany's industrial Ruhr valley by using Barnes Wallis' 'bouncing bombs', 53 were killed.<br />
 <br />
His medal group that includes the DFM and DFC as well as his RAF logbook that covers the mission are being sold by dealers War & Son of Herefordshire.
