Q: Who is Leonard Cheshire and how is it linked?

Leonard Cheshire was born in 1917. Like many young men and women at the time, he signed up to fight for his country in the Second World War and became one of the RAF's youngest commanding officers. His legendary war career included eight months leading No. 617 Squadron - the Dambusters. He became the most highly decorated bomber pilot when awarded the Victoria Cross in 1944.

At the end of the conflict, Leonard realised that he was one of the lucky ones. He had a desire to make the world a better place. Many ventures failed until he received a call from a local hospital. An acquaintance was dying and they asked if they could come and live with him. This started a lifetime of humanitarian work with disabled people. Leonard continued to fight injustice and work towards a society in which everyone is equally valued.

Today Leonard Cheshire the Charity supports Disabled People all over the world to live, learn and work as independently as they choose.
