Did you know that the Petwood Hotel at Woodhall Spa was the Officers’ Mess for 617 squadron - The Dambusters ? The hotel was requisitioned by the RAF in 1942, originally used by two other squadrons; but the building and nearby Woodhall Airfield were considered ideally remote for the secret work that 617 squadron was training for. A bar in the hotel commemorates Guy Gibson and his comrades.
