The Walls of Names surround the Memorial Spire in a series of circles framing the view of the City and the Cathedral. There are 271 individual panels. Each one is formed from engraved sheets of Corten Weathering Steel.
Every life lost in Bomber Command was equal in sacrifice and, as a result, the walls do not recognise rank or medals awarded.
The IBCC is the only place in the world where all these losses are commemorated.
