Motion text

That this House considers that it is more than time that a campaign medal should be issued for those who served in Bomber Command between the start of World War Two in 1939 and victory in 1945; recognises the enormous achievement of all Bomber Command's volunteer members of the bomber crew acting as a team in crippling the Nazi war machine and paving the way for the 1944 invasion of Europe, in the course of which Bomber Command lost 1,500 heavy bombers and 56,000 lives, mainly air crew, all sacrificed for their country; and further considers that the failure of the Committee on the Grant of Honours, Decorations and Medals at the end of the war to recognise service in Bomber Command as a operational qualification for decorations was a mistake that should now be rectified for this unique service.
