PRODUCTS > Greetings cards > Bomber Command Memorial, London
The Bomber Command Memorial in Green Park was built to commemorate the sacrifice of 55,573 aircrew who lost their lives during WW2. It was designed by architect Liam O’Connor in Portland stone with a bronze sculpture created by Philip Jackson representing the crew of a Lancaster bomber waiting for the return of their comrades after a sortie. The roof is made from the remains of a Royal Canadian Air Force Handley Page Halifax of No. 426 Squadron and designed to evoke the geodetic structure of the Vickers Wellington. It was unveiled by HM the Queen on 28 June 2012.

The memorial is of
particular significance for
Nicola as her uncle was lost without trace, along with his crew in April 1942, aged just 20.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them.
