Motion text

That this House supports fully the campaign to build a permanent memorial to the sacrifice and courage of the men who served in the Bomber Command during the Second World War; recalls that 55,573 men gave their lives serving in Bomber Command, almost half of the total who served; recognises that this was a higher proportion than in any other branch of the armed forces; believes that the freedoms which are enjoyed in the UK today are their legacy; and further believes that those men should now be honoured with a permanent memorial.
