RAF Bomber Command insignia
RAF Bomber Command was active from 1936 to 1968 with attached squadrons of the RCAF, RAAF and RNZAF. During World War Two aircrews suffered heavy losses with 44% of the force killed in action, 8500 wounded and 840 became POWs. A high price was paid which is now commemorated with a memorial at Lincoln Cathedral and Green Park in London. This design features a battle worn insignia and the motto, 'Strike Hard Strike Sure'.
