STUDENTS at Cordeaux School in Louth have learned about the daring Augsburg bombing raid of Germany, 70 years on.

The six students, all aged 14 were one of eight schools nationally who took part in Project Augsburg, which commemorated the 70th anniversary, and after studying the story went on a factfinding trip to RAF Waddington near Lincoln.

The year nine students also received a special talk from RAF representatives in school about the daring raid of April 1942 which saw 12 bombers from RAF Waddington and RAF Woodhall Spa carry out a daylight raid on the huge u-boat factory in the Bavarian city.

Initially the whole form started the project, and a lucky six were given the chance for a more hands on learning experience.

Students learned the background of the raid and its importance in the Second World War before they created and gave presentations on the raid in front of RAF representatives.

Watch a video to see Cordeaux School’s head of IT, Jessica Dover, presenting certificates of achievement to the students here.
