I knew about the RAF Benevolent Fund but I wouldn’t have thought of asking before, I hadn’t realised just how much they do to support veterans."

Jack Watson, Bomber Command veteran

Bomber Command Memorial

Welcome to the Bomber Command Memorial website

The RAF Benevolent Fund is proud and privileged to be the official guardian of the Bomber Command Memorial, which stands as a fitting tribute to the 55,573 Bomber Command crew who lost their lives in the Second World War. It is our honour to maintain the Memorial for future generations so that the noble sacrifice of those who lost their lives will always be remembered.

Bomber Command Remembrance Fund

To continue to honour the memory of those who have bravely gone before, we have created the Bomber Command Remembrance Fund to help the veterans they served alongside, and the serving personnel who follow in their footsteps, going through difficult times today. We would be delighted if you choose to remember those who so courageously served in Bomber Command for our freedom by donating to the Fund, supporting RAF men and women, like 96-year-old Bomber Command veteran Jack Watson.

The service included prayers, the Bomber Command Association Collect, a reading by a Bomber Command veteran and a one minute's silence.
