“A peaceful visit 31st October.”
Review of St. Clement Danes

After visiting the Bomber Command memorial, which was an emotional experience for my 80 year old Dad, we caught the tube to St Clement Danes church. It is a peaceful, lasting memorial to the RAF personnel, and our visit was made more special by Philippe, who found the name we were looking for in the record book. He made copies of the page, and gave us information which we are very grateful for. All in all, a very reflective experience.

A beautiful church that suffered damage during the Bltz in World War II. War damage is still visible on its outside . Beautiful and peaceful inside.
My highlight is the statue of Lord Dowding who commanded the RAF during the Battle of Britain and his foresight and determination secured the Victory that kept Britain free.

It is a very atmospheric place with a great sense of history. All the references to various aspects of the Royal Air Force make it very special.

I had a whole day in London to visit the special places I'd always promised myself I'd go to. Started with St Clement Danes RAF Church. Very evocative and a beautiful place to take time out. Very easy to find - Temple tube station, and walk up to main road. St Clement Danes is next to the Royal Courts of Justice - a very imposing building.
Then followed a visit to the WAAF Memorial near to the Cenotaph. Make sure you take kleenex for this one. A fitting tribute to all the girls in blue from so long ago.
Finally, it was on to the Bomber Command Memorial in Green Park. This is simply remarkable. It is breathtaking in its beauty but also very poignant as its dedicated to so many who didn't return from their missions.
R.I.P. all the boys and girls we lost from the RAF.

What a special place this ancient church is and how special it was to visit it. As a group of Aussies visiting the UK for Anzac Day, we found this church to be especially fascinating. We spent some time here simply examining the floor which is almost completely covered with Squadron Crests. If you wander around to the rear of the church you can still see the scars of war on the walls of the structure. Most interesting.
