RAF Bomber Command formed

14th July 1936

RAF Bomber Command was the organisation that controlled the RAF's bomber forces from 1936 to 1968.

During World War II, the command destroyed a significant proportion of Nazi Germany's industries and many German cities, and in the 1960s was at the peak of its postwar power with the V bombers and a supplemental force of Canberra light bombers.

RAF Bomber Command had 19 Victoria Cross winners and, in August 2006, a memorial was unveiled at Lincoln Cathedral.
