The History of the RAF - Discover the people, places and events that tell the story of 100 years of the RAF
The Allies of the RAF - Discover the role played by Allies of the RAF from the Commonwealth & other nations

Walks last about 1 ½ to 2 hours

The Allies of the RAF
During its 100 year history the RAF has been able to rely on the help of Allies from the Commonwealth and other nations, during times of major conflict. In this walk we remind ourselves of the amazing support provided by our allies during the World Wars in particular, visiting ceremonial architecture, statues and memorials to those nations and their personnel. The close and on-going connection between the Royal family, the RAF and the Commonwealth is explored, as are stories of some of the iconic aircraft used by the RAF. The walk visits the Bomber Command Memorial and ends near Hyde Park Corner.

The walks on 16th & 17th May mark the 75th anniversary of the Dambusters Raid.
