  1. The memorials erected at the various stations tell a story, but being related to specific units, they don’t truly tell the story of sacrifice, the losses.

    The magnitude of these losses, for me, is exemplified by the Roll of Honour (http://www.stpauls-roh.org.uk/cgi-local/asdsrch.pl#images) in the American Memorial Chapel at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. “The great American cemetery at Cambridge, like the American cemetery at Brockwood of the earlier war, marks the last resting place of many who gave their lives, but the majority of the dead, particularly among those who fought in air battles over Europe, have no known grave.” http://www.stpaulsusa.org/Pages/AmericanConnection.aspx.

    They do there, in the Roll of Honour in the American Memorial Chapel at St. Paul’s. Every American visiting London should visit St. Paul’s and pay homage to these brave men..

    • My sentiments exactly. Most individual memorials do tell the story of an individual airfield, but they do not give an overall picture of the huge losses suffered throughout the Second World War. Places like Saint Pauls Cathedral, and Madingley Cemetery at Cambridge, give a much better picture of those losses, particularly the missing in action wall at Madingley. Standing by the wall, as I was recently, and the huge list of names that seems endless, really brings home the extent and loss that these people suffered. Thanks for the links you sent, I will take a look and perhaps a visit to Saint Pauls is in order, sooner rather than later. Thanks for coming by as always.
