–           In September 1940, Winston Churchill said, “the fighters are our salvation but the bombers alone provide the means of victory”. These words are carved on one of the walls of the Bomber Command Memorial in Green Park, London. Between Dunkirk in 1940 and D-Day in 1944, Bomber Command, later supported by the American 8th Air Force, provided the only continuous strategic attack against the German Forces on the western front. Of the 105,000 airmen that served in Bomber Command 57,861 or 55% perished including 4,000 Australians plus those killed in training. Bomber Command represented 2% of all those who served but 20% of the casualties.  Their devotion to duty laid the foundation for D-Day and preserved for us the democratic society and freedoms, which we enjoy today. Twenty-four Victoria Crosses were awarded to Bomber Command personnel.
