207 SQUADRON ROYAL AIR FORCE HISTORY

Wreath Laying at the Air Forces' Memorial,
Runnymede, Sunday 14th August, 2005

The Memorial commemorates by name over 20,000 airmen who were lost in the Second World War during operations from bases in the United Kingdom and North and Western Europe, and who have no known graves.

The service provided an opportunity to honour - in the place where their names are recorded - those who died on the Squadron in World War II and have no known grave.

The memorial also lists those who died on another unit after serving on 207.




In 2005, the Annual Aircrew Association Families Day Service at the Air Forces Memorial, Runnymede took place the day before the 60th Anniversary of the ending of World War II.
