Dambusters2014 is very proud to support the RAF Benevolent Fund .....

Did you know that the RAF Benevolent Fund is the proud custodian of the Royal Air Force Memorial on the banks of the Thames, and that we are very proud that we are now also guardian for the Bomber Command Memorial? Well you do now! 

It is our aim to preserve the Bomber Command Memorial for future generations so that the noble sacrifice of 55,573 young Bomber Command crew who lost their lives will always be remembered.

Second World War veteran Frank Dell shares his memories of serving with Bomber Command and tells us what the Bomber Command Memorial means to him. It is a very powerful and moving piece to camera from the RAF BF's website...:

Precious Cargo - the Scroll is a quarter through it's journey ....

The Precious Cargo UK tour is a quarter complete. The scroll has completed 9 visits and has another 27 to go. The number of signatures obtained so far is significantly higher than expected, and based on the current run rate , we will need to extend the scroll from its current 20 meters to 45 metres! The extension will be made during the next 10 days and shipped to Scotland where it will catch up with the scroll on its tour and be attached to the original section. The good news is that the bank account still has loads of space left in it , so please help us fill it ! Visit or donation page at:

Precious Cargo is one of the three selected charities for the 3rd 'Dambusters' Charity Motorcycle Ride along with the RAF Benevolent Fund and Motorcycle Outreach.
