Thanks, PW. I may go and have a butcher's next I visit the Mother-in-Law. She lives near Paddington station, so it's not too far.

Further to my Post yesterday, with all the Photos, here are some 'zoom' pics of the inscriptions listing those who supported this Memorial and also the Architect, etc. It is now easier to see the name of Robin Gibb (four lines down in the first pic) which I mentioned previously:

I had been meaning to buy the Bomber Command Memorial Book but hadn't got 'round to it.

So I was pleased to see it being sold at the British Military Tournament.

I was even more pleased to get it signed by John Banfield MBE, Harry Irons DFC instrumental in getting the memorial built and the author Steve Darlow.

A nice book that I can thoroughly recommend.
I'd rather be skiing
