We shall remember them

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. 
Under Construction
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.
