Visit the RAF Bomber Command Memorial

Today is Remembrance Sunday, and the perfect time to visit London's newest war memorial on, unveiled in June this year to commemorate those who flew with Bomber Command on missions during the Second World War.

The memorial is found in Green Park and is built in Portland stone. At its heart stand seven 9-foot-high bronze airmen, shown looking at the horizon, from which many of their comrades would sadly never return. 55,573 aircrew from all over the world lost their lives with Bomber Command during World War II.
