Bomber Command Memorial
The long-awaited memorial to the Royal Air Force (RAF) Bomber Command, London’s poignant Bomber Command Memorial is a heartfelt tribute to the 55,573 British, Australian, New Zealand, Canadian and Commonwealth pilots and aircrew who lost their lives and the many others who were wounded or captured during the air raids of WWII.
Officially opened in 2012 by Queen Elizabeth II, the striking memorial takes center stage near the western entrance of London’s Green Park and includes a Bomber Command Memorial Time Capsule crafted from the remains of a Second World War bomber. The design of architect Liam O’Connor, the memorial also features a 2.7-meter high bronze sculpture depicting a seven-man bomber crew, housed inside a grand classical portico made of Portland Stone.
