On Saturday 31 October we held a virtual service of Remembrance from the Bomber Command Memorial in Green Park paying tribute to all those who made the ultimate sacrifice during the Second World War. The service, held annually, pays tribute to the 55,573 men of Bomber Command who were killed during the Second World War. Coronavirus restrictions meant the event had to be staged virtually this year.
Conducted by Reverend (Squadron Leader) Chrissie Lacey, Station Chaplain, RAF High Wycombe, the Service included the prayers, readings and a one minute silence. As we are celebrating the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, the Service was also accompanied by a short history of Bomber Command by RAF Author and Historian Steve Darlow, with a particular focus on Bomber Command’s often forgotten activities during the Battle of Britain.
