Bomber Command centre to 'echo' Lancaster shape
Readers may be familiar with the memorial to RAF Bomber Command that was unveiled by HM Queen Elizabeth II in Green Park, London, a couple of years ago. Until then there had been no official memorial to the bomber crews who died during the Second World War. Now there is soon to be a second - as well as the first museum devoted to that arm of the RAF - in Lincoln, to further honour the men of Bomber Command.
As detailed in the main article, the nearby visitor centre has been ingeniously designed to resemble the outline of an Avro Lancaster bomber, that most famous mainstay of RAF bomber squadrons. It is also set be named The Chadwick Centre, after Avro's chief designer Roy Chadwick.
All this adds up to an excellent and beautiful form of remembrance for all the brave men of the RAF Bomber Command, as well as those at the Avro works and doubtless many more local and national war heroes to boot. I'm sure it will be a credit to Lincoln and all the airmen who gave their lives in service to their country.
