Bomber Command memorial in Lincolnshire

Members of the public are invited to help choose the design of a historic memorial, which will commemorate Royal Air Force Bomber Command crew stationed in Lincolnshire during World War II.

The Lincolnshire Bomber Command Memorial Appeal was started to encourage the recognition of the Command's aircrew, who sacrificed their lives during the war. In total, over 25,000 men lost their lives flying from Lincolnshire for the Bomber Command.

The Memorial Appeal has commissioned design proposals from renowned architects, and these will go on public display throughout April 2013.
