55,573 RAF Bomber Command aircrew gave their lives during the Second World War fighting for our freedom.
It took astonishing courage from these young gentlemen, most in their late teens. Flying at night over occupied Europe, facing German night fighters, anti-aircraft fire and mid-air collisions, their nerves were stretched to breaking point.
The Bomber Command Memorial in London’s Green Park is dedicated to those brave airmen from the United Kingdom, British Commonwealth and Allied Nations who served in RAF Bomber Command and made the ultimate sacrifice. It is a fitting tribute to an extraordinary generation, who set the standards of duty and sacrifice by which the RAF still serves today.
