On 21st April our campaign group was contacted by BBC television producer Victoria Panton Bacon, whose Grandfather flew Blenheims in WWII. Victoria has recently edited 'The Six Weeks of Blenheim Summmer', an account of her grandfather's experiences in WW2 which she discovered amongst his belongings.

Our goal is a common one. Bomber Command needs full and final recognition from the UK government and we are delighted to be working with her to try and achieve this for our survivng Bomber Command veterans and the close families of their comrades who are still with us today.


Together we will show that the Military Medals Review undertaken in 2012 was unfair to Bomber Command.


Please support the Bomber Command Medal Campaign and sign the Fair Military Medals Review Petition.

To help us with a campaign, our new campaign poster has now been produced. We hope that this will help to spread the word.
