Originally created for the The Dambusters Dinner at the Joint Services Command and Staff College, Shrivenham in 2008, Dambuster is a creamy, smooth mature cheddar in a black wax. Dambuster is available as a 1.5kg cutting wheel or as a 200g truckle.
Squadron Leader George Leonard “Johnny” Johnson, MBE, DFM, the last surviving Dambuster on the 75th anniversary of the Dambusters raid at the 4th Godmanchester Bomber Command Veterans Day, enjoyed our Dambuster Cheddar. He said ‘I’m not going to drop these, far too precious!’ He is sat alongside Mary Stopes-Roe, Barnes Wallis’ daughter, the inventor of the bouncing bomb.
Operation Chastise was an attack on German dams carried out on 16–17 May 1943 by Royal Air Force No. 617 Squadron, later called the Dam Busters, using a purpose-built “bouncing bomb” developed by Barnes Wallis.
