Yesterday the memorial to Bomber Command was unveiled and dedicated in Green Park. It is located at the far end of Piccadilly at Hyde Park Corner. It is a beautiful structure cast in a classical style in Portland Stone; with an amazing sculpture in the middle.
I pass by on my way home from work nearly every day and have been watching its construction. Of course I didn't get to see it finally unveiled yesterday as I was on site on the other side of London.
I shall be paying a visit. My granddad was a bomber pilot; he never spoke about his experiences in the war and he didn't live to see the memorial unveiled.
