What's New in Version 1.1.1
Updated audio interview with Dambusters veteran, Johnny Johnson.
An Excellent App
This well designed and thought out app will add real value to any visit to the memorial.
In particular, the audio guide to the memorial made our visit all the more poignant and was as if we had our own personal guide showing us around.
The memorial itself is a fitting tribute to the brave men of Bomber Command without whom we would not have the freedom we take for granted, today.
A fitting tribute
Interesting and informative app, telling the story of Bomber Command. Pictures, sounds, and stats tell the stories of these heroic men in WW2, and link to their memorial sculpture in London. Brilliant interview section, inc. the great "Johnnie" Johnson retelling the story of the Dams Raid, in gripping detail.
If you've ever wondered by so many people in the UK have such affection for the Lancaster Bomber, this explains. Lest we forget.
