Also as we have said before this is the home of The Dam Busters Squadron during the War – and that stylish hotel The Petwood Hotel was the meeting place for the RAF personnel at the time – and also many times afterwards at the many reunions which quite often had Richard Todd as a guest. His connection was of course his playing of Guy Gibson in the film and the fact also that he lived in Lincolnshire for many years – plus he was a real war hero as a paratrooper having taken part in the taking of Pegasus Bridge.
