Summary
The flyers in Bomber Command had the highest casualty rates of any fighting unit among the allies in World War Two. The splendid Bomber Command Memorial at Green Park across from Buckingham Palace was officially opened by Queen Elizabeth II on June 28, 2012. It sits under an aluminum roof rescued from a WW2 Wellington bomber. The site is an overdue tribute to125000 aircrew who served, and 55,573 who were lost in operations between 1940 and 1945. The celebratory opening comes sixty-seven years after the end of World War Two. The flyers of Bomber Command are the last to receive their honour after six plus decades of being shunned by political officialdom
