PAFMC plaque placed at the International Bomber Command Centre

 

The Polish Air Force Memorial Committee has made a donation to the International Bomber Command Centre (IBCC) in Lincoln, which has been acknowledged with the installation of a stone plaque along the avenue leading to ‘The Walls of Names’ and the Memorial Spire.

 

The stone plaque inscribed ‘Polish Air Force Memorial Committee’ together with the Polish Air Force chequerboard insignia, will form part of the Ribbon of Remembrance.

 

Every stone represents a different story and serves as a poignant place to reflect and remember, but also support the IBCC, with the funds raised helping to continue research, preserve stories and build a valuable learning platform.

 

The impressive facility provides the world’s most comprehensive record of Bomber Command and ensures that generations to come can learn of their vital role in protecting the freedom enjoyed today.

 

During WWII over a million men and women came from 62 nations to serve or support Bomber Command. The IBCC contains the stories of those who suffered as a result of the bombing campaigns and those whose survival was guaranteed by the humanitarian operations of Bomber Command.

 

The IBCC is a registered charity 1144182 and is located in Canwick Avenue,Lincoln, LN4 2HQ.
