Danco Plc proud to provide structures at Bomber Command Memorial unveiling ceremony
Danco are very proud to have supplied 12 structures for the Bomber Command Monument unveiling ceremony at Green Park in London.
The event in which the official monument was unveiled by H.M The Queen was also attended by Prince Phillip, many other senior members of the Royal Family together with nearly 6,000 veterans and families of the fallen.
The Bomber Command Monument is a tribute to the many thousands of brave airmen who gave their lives fighting in WW2. It is a fitting memorial to them and we are proud to have provided our structures for the various events within the park throughout the day.
Before the sounding of the Last Post, five Tornado GR4s, the RAF’s modern-day bombers, flew overhead in formation ahead of Britain’s last remaining airworthy Lancaster bomber. While the thousands of spectators watched on the ground below, the Lancaster flew overhead and scattered Green Park with poppies in a fitting salute to the fallen.
A yew tree donated by the people of Germany has also been planted next to the monument as reminder that they also owe a debt to Bomber Command for helping free their country and Europe from Nazi tyranny, and as a symbol of remembrance for all those killed by Allied bombs.
The corner of Green Park will now forever be a place of remembrance to the 55,573 brave men who sacrificed themselves to the gratitude of the Nation.
