Loss of Life

The Second World War involved a tremendous loss of life, both civilian and those serving in the armed forces. Many service personnel, in the course of their duties, had to face imprisonment, malnutrition, illness, injury, disability, disfigurement or even death.

All RAF aircrew were volunteers, despite the personal dangers they would face by flying operations in combat areas. They were fully prepared to do this in order to protect their freedoms and to restore liberty to the occupied countries of the world.
