Lincolnshire Bomber Command Memorial
For some time there has been a move to build a Memorial to the 25,611 Bomber Command aircrew, from the UK, The Commonwealth and the rest of the world, based in Lincolnshire, who lost their lives in World War 2. This figure represents 46% of all the Command’s losses during the war. In total 55,573 killed out of a total of 125,000 aircrew (a 44.4% death rate), a further 8,403 were wounded in action and 9,838 became prisoners of war. An extraordinary mix of people from all over the world flew with Bomber Command, including Canadians, Australians, New Zealanders, Poles, Czechs, South Africans, French, Americans, Jamaicans and Rhodesians. 28% of the 55,000 lost Bomber Command airmen were non-British.
Paul Beaver is a fund-raiser for the Lincolnshire Bomber Command Memorial. as part of the awareness camapign, he is organising events in London including a black tie dinner in the House of Commons.
