The Victims of Bomber Command

Here's a touching story from the Daily Telegraph about Bomber Command airmen from World War II.

“Yet unlike the heroes of Fighter Command – those we remember for their derring-do in Hurricanes and Spitfires – Britain has been rather more reluctant to honour its bomber crews, even though of all the branches of the Armed Forces, they faced the deadliest odds. The veterans of Bomber Command have always believed that their fallen comrades became victims of a desire to brush under the carpet the hundreds of thousands of civilian deaths that resulted from their raids.”
