Overview

The Air Forces Memorial at Runnymede commemorates by name over 20,000 airmen who were lost in the Second World War during operations from bases in the United Kingdom and North and Western Europe, and who have no known graves. They served in Bomber, Fighter, Coastal, Transport, Flying Training and Maintenance Commands, and came from all parts of the Commonwealth. Some were from countries in continental Europe which had been overrun but whose airmen continued to fight in the ranks of the Royal Air Force. This Memorial overlooks the River Thames on Cooper's Hill at Englefield Green between Windsor and Egham on the A308, 4 miles from Windsor.

Visited for first time and was moved by the sheer number of names. It was easy to find the name of my uncle. It is a lovely peaceful place. The engraved writings are poignant.

Be prepared to walk up the steps to the tower and look at the views. They can be hard to climb if you have knee problems as one of my friends found out.

As the child of an ex RAF serviceman I couldn't drive past this place and not stop. I'm so glad I did.

The memorial is another fine example of the work done by The Commonwealth War Graves Commission. The grounds are well kept and the memorial itself befits the airmen it commemorates. Take the time to walk around and contemplate, take the stairs to the top of...More
