 THE IBCC EXPERIENCE
The IBCC provides a world-class facility acknowledging the efforts, sacrifices and commitment of the men and women, from 62 different nations, who came together in Bomber Command during WWII.

The project also covers 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.

During WWII over a million men and women served or supported Bomber Command. They came from 62 nations across the world and were united in their efforts to protect the freedom we enjoy today. The service included Aircrew, Ground Crew, Women’s Auxiliary Air Force, Auxiliary Air Transport, Auxiliary Transport Services, NAAFI and many others.

Bomber Command suffered the highest losses of any unit during WWII but have struggled for recognition.

Every member of Bomber Command aircrew was a volunteer.

The average age at death was only 23.

“Bomber County is the place from where many of us operated,
so most veterans think that this is the place where we should
be remembered. The magnificent Memorial, Digital Archive,
Exhibition and International Peace Gardens when completed
will ensure that memories of our sacrifices will live on.”
H. James Flowers
50/44 Squadrons, rear gunner
