DetailsMedal Presentation Set featuring RAF Bomber Command full-size and miniature Commemorative medals, matching ribbon brooch bar and case.
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.
We were delighted to announce at the time of the launch 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.
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.
The Bomber Command Medal is available exclusively to all who served in Bomber Command during the Second World War, their next of kin or direct descendants.
