One of our Ben’s has sent in a great pair of pictures of the new Bomber Command Memorial in the grounds of the War Memorial. The unusual perspective shot is courtesy of a friendship with the sculptor. I have to say that I view strategic air power (not to be confused with tactical air power) as one of the most useless, and murderous forms of war. But the young men who followed orders and climbed into those machines knowing the slim chances of eventual survival deserve respect and remembrance.
Here’s the view from a distance.
And from very close.
