One of the signatures in the album is that is that of Dambusters Pilot, Squadron Leader Henry Melvin "Dinghy" Young, DFC & Bar. Young raced in the winning Oxford team in the 1938 boat race. Alongside Henry Maudsley, he carried out much of the organising work needed to form 617 Squadron. Young was second in command of the raid, which was led by Wg Cdr Guy Gibson.
