The memorial has been built to be modern, yet classical, in Portland stone. At its heart are the bronze sculptures of a Bomber Command aircrew. Within the memorial, the space is open to the sky with an opening designed to allow light to fall directly onto sculptures of the aircrew. « less

A lovely walk through Green park. The sculpture is very moving the faces of the crew are so life-like, it made me feel proud to be English. This memorial is long over due, Bomber command have waited a long time for this recognition for their ultimate sacrifice. We cannot thank the men and women enough.

A fitting tribute to the brave young men that put their lives on the line for their country. Standing in front of this memorial brings a lump to the throat as one remembers their youth and exhuberance, and then realise how many of these young men were sacrificed for the freedom we enjoy today.

We owe them so much, yet all to often we ignore the sacrifice young men made to secure our freedom from tyranny. Not for them the 'I' society so many live for today, but selfless acts of bravery as they did their duty & serving others.

Well worth a visit and recommend a walk through Green Park weather permitting. Take your time and go through the park to see Buckingham Palace on the opposite side. Then a walk up the Mall to Horse-guards Parade. When there look to the right to see the little house at the top of St James Park.

I had the honour to be present when this incredible memorial was unveiled by Her Majesty the Queen in 2012, but visited it for the first time yesterday. I found it a very moving experience as my late father flew 30 missions in the Lancaster Bomber as a mid upper gunner, and to see the seven crew members portrayed, made... More

Although this memorial is in a busy location, it is a very fitting tribute to all of the airmen who served in the war. Well worth a look. Read the inscriptions on the walls of the memorial.

Finally we have a fitting tribute to the thousands of air crew that gave their lives in the struggle agains Hitler's Germany. The characters portrayed on the monument are beautifully scupted, each with his own indelible character stamped on the metal.
