Air Forces Memorial Runnymede

The Runnymede Air Forces Memorial commemorates 20,000 Allied airmen who went missing in World War II or who have never been given an official burial. All these pilots flew from air bases in the UK and Northern and Western Europe. The memorial was designed by Sir Edward Maufe with sculptures by Vernon Hill. The engraved glass and painted ceilings were designed by John Hutton and the poem engraved on the window was written by Paul H Scott.
