    The Air Forces Memorial, or Runnymede Memorial, in Englefield Green, near Egham Surrey is a memorial dedicated to some 20,456 men and women from the British and Commonwealth Forces who were lost in air operations during WW2. Those recorded have no known grave anywhere in the world, and many were lost without trace.

    The memorial was designed by Sir Edward Maufe with sculpture by Vernon Hill. The engraved glass and painted ceilings were designed by John Hutton, and the poem engraved on the gallery window was written by Paul H Scott. It was the first post-World War II building to be listed for architectural merit.

    These are some recent images that I took.

    Brilliant Thanks, unfortunately I did not have time to take each panel.
    The monument itself is well worth a visit, very moving and of wonderful design!
