Lest We Forget

In this online exhibition, Lest We Forget, we examine the sacrifices made during human conflict; inviting online visitors to reflect Lest We Forget on the loss of the individual and the impact that their departure has on their families and loved ones.

At the same time we also explore the invaluable work of the agencies and support networks that have emerged since the First World War to bring practical aid and comfort to those RAF families who have suffered bereavement and examine, through podcasts, the importance of Remembrance and celebrate the life of Henry Allingham – much beloved, and missed, by his many friends within the Museum.

As part of this exhibition the families of departed RAF Service Personnel are invited to commemorate their loved ones by placing a short message together with a favourite photograph in our electronic Book of Remembrance.
