View Full Version : Bomber Command Campaign Medal

From the website for support for this initiative:

Crewing an RAF heavy bomber was the second most dangerous role performed by servicemen on any side during the Second World War. At the end of the war the contraversial 'area bombing' policy (which was adopted in 1942 and heavily supported by the Prime Minister and the Government of the day) became something of an embarrassment to the powers that be once its full effectiveness had become known, and the authorities turned their backs on those who had implemented it. To this date, the bomber offensive against Germany is the only recognised campaign never to have been marked by the issue of a medal to those who fought it - men (and women) who were left to feel as though their country was ashamed of them. Many of the surviving veterans are now approaching the ends of their lives, and this petition is to request that their courage and sacrifice be belatedly recognised by the institution of a Bomber Command Campaign medal.

The thread for the campaign is already on this forum.

Thanks for your interest though.

But I will close it.
