The Bomber Command Memorial was unveiled in 2012 after a long campaign to gain recognition for the sacrifices made by the bomber crews of World War II.

The long span of time that passed between the war and it being built was attributed to to the way that we now view raids like Dresden. Campaigners had long argued that the crews played no part in the politics, and therefore didn’t deserve to be forgotten – an argument that finally won through 60 years after the war had ended.

The Memorial commemorates the 55,573 airmen of all nations, not just Britain, who lost their lives in the bombing campaigns of World War II, along with those who lost their lives on the ground.
