Find Lord Dowding

A statue of Lord Dowding stands outside St Clement Danes on the Strand, commemorating the man who was the commander of RAF Fighter Command during the Battle of Britain.

Installed in the 1990s, the statue is cast in bronze, and was was designed by Portrait Sculptor Faith Winter, who also created the ‘Bomber’ Harris statue which stands nearby.
