It took is a little while to find this memorial up in the corner of Green Park, but it was well worth our walk. The bravery and dedication of the crew, depicted as they are just leaving their aircraft from their most recent sortie is so well depicted and is a worthy tribute to these young crews - at last! The monument itself is awe-inspiring and moving, and the vital contribution made to the war effort by the crews of Bomber Command (and their subsequent treatment after the war) makes it feel almost obligatory that we today should go and reflect on their sacrifice. To think that their average age was only 22 is humbling. For Australians, there is the added bonus of the Australian war memorial close by, striking in its simple construction which so cleverly depicts all the home towns of the Australian servicemen.
