Robin Gibb campaigned for Bomber Command memorial

"Bomber Command have always been heroes to me," the late Robin Gibb told ITV Daybreak in 2010.

"The role they played was a very important part in winning the war and it's repugnant that after so many years there hasn't been a permanent memorial in the centre of London."

Today, just 40 days after he died, the memorial he had campaigned for will be unveiled.
