Bomber Command Act of Remembrance Service
Bomber Command Memorial
The special service took place on Sunday 31st October 2021 at the Bomber Command Memorial in London’s Green Park. In addition to the United Kingdom representatives from several other nations such as the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand Norway, Poland and France also paid their respects to the 55,573 airmen who gave their lives serving with Bomber Command during World War II.
The Avro Lancaster is synonymous with the air war over Germany, and the bronze work by sculpture Philip Jackson represents a typical 7 man crew of the iconic bomber designed by Roy Chadwick, the memorial serves as a lasting tribute to all those who perished during flight training and combat missions flying an assortment of aircraft operated by Bomber Command at the time, such as the Wellington, Blenheim and Stirling bomber.
