Bomber Command Memorial

The Royal Air Force Bomber Command Memorial is a memorial commemorating the aircrews of RAF Bomber Command who embarked on missions during the Second World War.  The memorial was built to mark the sacrifice of 55,573 aircrew from Britain, Canada, Czechoslovakia, Poland and other countries of the Commonwealth, as well as civilians of all nations killed during raids.
It is located in Green Park, near Hyde Park Corner, just in front of the RAF Club, only a 5 minute walk away.

Queen Elizabeth II officially opened the memorial on 28 June 2012. On the same day as the official opening, and Honorary Air Commodores' Lunch was held at the Club in the Ballroom. Several members of the Royal Family walked the short distance to the Club from the memorial.
