Bomber Command Memorial

Regarding the news of a Bomber Command Memorial to be constructed in England, that represents all those that payed to ultimate sacrifice ..............

Not before time, very little, very late but at least some recognition. A medal regarding Bomber Command for those who served, would be just recognition.

Yes Agree 100 % +, sorry if i said any if not all of this before I'm well involved in commissioning a memorial to some aircrews from my area, this will be erected with funds raised by ourselves ( please feel free to chip in ) but will be covered by the local parish council insurance and maintenance budget, as for a memorial to all bomber command, yes definately, a must, and a medal, this is surely a must, what could be the cost, compared to all the money wasted on useless stuff like MP's expence claims.

I was in town a few weeks back and saw this old guy, usual blazer with military crest, so i just wandered over for a chat, now this old guy was a survivor from the d day landings and he was so pleased that someone was interested in him, he got his medal out and this was his life, his pride and joy, you could see it in his eyes. I said to him what a pleasure it was to meet a hero, he said
''No i'm no hero, just a silly bugger from Wales who was in the wrong place at the wrong time.''

They deserve that medal, politics apart, these guys never even thought politics, just wanted to defend their country.
