April-May 2010 65th Anniversary coverage of the Chowhound -Manna observations at the memorial.
In Dutch at the beginning with Marlies who organized the entire event being interviewed, well worth the wait until the food drop veterans come on, also Charles Clark, Bomber Command vet, Luft III veteran speaks about their efforts to build a monument in Piccadilly Square for the 56,000+ RAF Bomber Command airmen lost. the Manna flyers talk about their food drop experiences.
