Bloomin' marvelous. Yhanks to Canada for the recognition the British government have failed to give to Bomber Harris and the brave crews of Bomber Command.

From somewhere in Bomber County, I salute you all.

I have read the personal stories of many airmen including those of Bomber Command, and I have had the privelage of knowing a few over the years.
I think the establishment is at last, if slowly starting to recognise the bravery of these individuals.

and rightly so too. Brave souls working in extreme extreme conditions. Amazing all this happened only 70 years ago, how quickly things have changed
