Battle of Britain Memorial :: Shared Description

The Battle of Britain Monument is a sculpture on the Victoria Embankment, which commemorates the British military personnel who took part in the Battle of Britain during the Second World War.
It was unveiled in 2005, the 65th anniversary of the Battle.
The monument was conceived by Bill Bond, founder of the Battle of Britain Historical Society.
The monument is a panelled granite structure 25 m long which was originally designed as a smoke outlet for underground trains. The centrepiece is an approximately life sized sculpture of airmen scrambling for their aircraft during the battle. The outside of the monument is lined with bronze plaques listing 2,936 airmen and ground crew from 14 countries who took part in the battle on the Allied side.
The sculptor of the monument is Paul Day.
