Overview

The RAF Benevolent Fund is proud and privileged to be the custodian of the new Bomber Command Memorial in central London. The memorial has been built to be modern, yet classical, in Portland stone. At its heart are the bronze sculptures of a Bomber Command aircrew. Within the memorial, the space is open to the sky with an opening designed to allow light to fall directly onto sculptures of the aircrew.

A beautiful monument to commemorate brave airmen. The RAF crest and motto stand out very clearly and the open roof above the statues automatically lifts you to the skies.
