"Hannover: 504 aircraft - 282 Lancasters, 188 Halifaxes, 26 Wellingtons, 8 Mosquitos. This was the last Bomber Command raid in which Wellingtons took part. 300 (Polish) and 432 (Canadian) Squadrons provided the 26 Wellingtons which operated on this night; they all returned safely. The German controller guessed correctly that Hannover was the target and many night fighters arrived before the attack was over. 27 aircraft - 14 Lancasters and 13 Halifaxes - were lost, 5.4 per cent of the force. Conditions over Hannover were clear and the Pathfinders were finally able to mark the centre of the city accurately; a most concentrated attack followed with a creepback of only 2 miles, all within the built-up area. This was probably Hannover's worst attack of the war."
"A dear husband and daddy. Some may forget you but we will remember you always."

'You are gone from me but in my memory we always will be together'
"Father, in thy gracious keeping leave we now thy servant sleeping."
On the morning of 18 August, 1940, Lance-Sergeant Button was ordered with his section to continue the work of excavating an unexploded bomb. Although he knew well that, owing to the time already spent on excavation, the bomb was liable to explode at any moment, he continued the work of his section with great coolness. The bomb eventually exploded, killing six sappers of the Section, and throwing Lance-Sergeant Button a considerable distance. Although considerably shaken he behaved with great coolness, collected the rest of his Section at a safe distance, ascertained that none of them was injured, notified the First Aid Detachment, and reported to his Section Officer by telephone.
"In loving memory of our beloved son gone but not forgotten. Mum, Dad and Vera."
"His life a fragrant memory / his death a silent grief."
"Died fighting for justice and freedom."
"He lives for ever in the hearts of those who love him so much"
"Requiescat in pace"
"Greater love hath no man than this."
He died / that those he loved / might live in freedom
"In loving memory of our son. / He flew out of our lives. / Always in our thoughts. / R.I.P."
"Peace, perfect peace."
