Its been a while since I’ve been able to update my blog, due to pressure of work.
As you may know through reading my previous posts, I’ve very passionate about how badly the Bomber Command veterans have been treated by successive governments and how finally there is now a fantastic new Memorial to them sited in London’s Green Park. This was funded totally by private donations, with no input from government funds. The RAF Benevolent Fund is now responsible for the upkeep of the Memorial and they now face a £1.5 million bill to maintain it, particularly after the unfortunate instances of vandalism earlier this summer.
Many people are coming up with varied ideas to try and help raise money towards this, including get veterans to sign specialist prints which will then be auctioned off.
Since the opening of the Memorial I’ve taken hundreds of photos of it and decided I would use these to create a personal photographic tribute to my uncle and his crew, who were lost on a raid to Hamburg in April 1942. They have no known grave. He was aged just 20.
The book is in a small square format, available in 3 finishing options: a soft back cover, a hardback image wrap and a hardback with a paper cover. Personally I think it looks fabulous and I’ve had many positive comments about it already and many purchases.
The book can be viewed and purchased here: http://blur.by/14RyqVY. All monies will go to the RAF Benevolent Fund to help with the upkeep of the Memorial. I am taking no money from this at all. I would also greatly appreciate it, if you could post the link on your pages too. The more money we can raise, the better to honour our amazing heroes
