Memorials relating to RAF Bomber Command can be found at various locations across the entire UK. Ranging from aircraft crash sites, disused or still active airfields to churches, schools and many more. They are dedicated to aircrews, groundcrews, airfields, Sqn’s or Units.
Understandably, a greater number of memorials specifically dedicated to aircraft & aircrew losses can be found across the low countries of North-West Europe. Finally, a smaller number also exist in Australia, Canada & New Zealand.
The memorials vary in shape, size & type, however they all are of equal value in their prime function, which quite simply is to ensure we remember and never forget . . .
IBCC Memorials Archivist, Tony Hibberd, will provide a detailed insight to this often-overlooked aspect of Bomber Command. With the assistance of IBCC Losses Archivist Dave Gilbert, the evening will also include an explanation of a significant enhancement to the current IBCC Losses Database
