Operation Manna Memorial.

Operation Manna
"Voedsel uit de hemmel"
"Food from the sky"
"Bread from heaven"
In the final few weeks of World War II, thousands of Dutch people were dying of starvation and having to scavenge for anything remotely edible, even tulip bulbs.
Occupying German forces agreed to allow British and American aircraft to undertake a low level drop of food supplies, providing that all their guns pointed upwards.
Many of the Lancaster fliers were from Lincolnshire, and in particular, some from RAF Grimsby (Waltham) Squadrons.
This commemorative panel shows a lone Lancaster, with guns elevated skywards, dropping doves of peace, each holding a symbolic "bread of heaven" wafer for the starving crowds below. A figure representing a reborn Holland wrapped in the national flag, emerges from a tulip bulb, through the severed barbed wire, and reaches skywards to gather the welcome food.
