Vintage Viewings

The Bomber Command Memorial Book
RCAF
Please join our campaign to remember the fallen, inform Canadians of the sacrifices made by bomber command veterans. To date our partnership with Fighting High Publishing has contributed to the raising of £31,617. The 55,573 aircrew of Bomber Command lost their lives during the Second World War, yet no campaign medal was awarded and their bravery and sacrifice went largely unrecognized. On 28 June 2012 this was corrected with the dedication and unveiling of the Bomber Command Memorial in The Green Park, London. The journey from the initial idea to the unveiling of the memorial was a long and complex one and 'The Bomber Command Memorial - We Will Remember Them' book tells the story of the campaign. The mission of the Air Force Association of Canada is to inform new generations of Canadians about the history of their country’s air force. This would suggest we should try and put a copy of this invaluable book in every library. If you would like to purchase one for your library, call Rose (866-351-2322 ext 223) or e-mail Kitshop@airforce.ca today.
