BOMBER COMMAND MEMORIAL, THE

Synopsis

55,573 aircrew of Bomber Command lost their lives during the Second World War, yet their bravery and sacrifice went largely unrecognized. On 28 June 2012 this was corrected with the dedication and unveiling of the Bomber Command Memorial in Green Park, London. This tells the story of the campaign: locating a site, raising the funds, designing the memorial, and the opening ceremony.
