2020 Bomber Command Commemorative Day

The annual Bomber Command Commemorative wreath laying ceremony

Sunday 31st May 2020

Bomber Command Memorial, Australian War Memorial


As the Australian War Memorial remained closed for the commemorative ceremony this year, a wreath was laid at the Bomber Command Memorial on behalf of all of us who would normally attend the ceremony.  The Australian War Memorial have have kindly posted them on the Australian War Memorial facebook page, which we have included here.

The Last Post ceremony, broadcast on Saturday, commemorated the service of Pilot Officer Frederick James Knight of 460 Squadron RAAF. This service was originally recorded during the 2019 annual Bomber Command commemorations.

We would like to thank the Australian War Memorial for their support in making the commemoration possible this year.
We look forward to seeing everyone at the commemorative ceremony next year as we remember the bravery, service and sacrifice of those in Bomber Command and also to celebrate 100 years of the RAAF in 2021.
