Bomber Command

Saturday, 19 May 2018 10:30:00 Europe/London

Bomber Command

RAF Bomber Command was formed in 1935 and really came under direction and influence when Air Marshal Arthur 'Bomber' Harris was appointed Commander in Chief in 1942. Under his direction, Bomber Command became a force to be reckoned with during the Second World War which significantly influenced the final outcome and Victory in Europe with raids such as the 'thousand bomb raid' in Cologne, Dam Busters and helped pave the way for the D-Day landings.

We were delighted that the driving force behind the concept of a commemorative medal for members of Bomber Command was the RAF columnist and author, Alan Cooper, who has long supported the view that veterans of this branch of the service have received inadequate medallic reward for their courage and skill during WWII. Since the striking of the first RAF Bomber Command Medal by Lady Harris and the late Air Vice Marshal D.C.T. Bennett CB, DSO, FRAeS, in April 1985, thousands of Bomber Command WW2 veterans from all over the world have applied for and received their medal.The medal is a tribute to the bravery of those who flew and to the dedication and skill of the ground crew whose contribution was so very essential.
