Owner description: The RAF Benevolent Fund is proud and privileged to be the custodian of the new Bomber Command Memorial in central London. 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.

“At last a memorial to our brave airmen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Together with my husband, I was privileged to attend the unveiling of this spectacular memorial, We returned a few weeks later with our son and daughter, and it was an emotional
experience, especially because my late father served as a Lancaster pilot with Bomber Command Although he was lucky enough to survive the war, he did not live to see this impressive sculpture in the name of his fallen comrades, It was a matter close to his heart that a symbol of recognition of their sacrifice should have been made in their honour, and now we have it to show future generations. It was with great pride that I looked up at this magnificent memorial.

This is a fantastic piece of art and a very fitting memorial beautifully finished. Very easy to get to at the Hyde Park end of Green Park.

“A fitting memorial”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

This superb memorial is a fitting tribute to the nearly 56,000 who died in Bomber Command in World War 2. My father was a survivor, living to be 87 and it was a bit emotional for me because I wish he could have seen it. One amazing thing is we met the family of a man who had been on the same squadron as my dad, what are the odds of that happening? A must see for anyone but particularly for those with family connections.
