A dozen Bomber Command veterans attended the official launch of the new book to raise funds for the Bomber Command Memorial at the weekend at RAF Hendon. As well as the veterans, the principal authors of the book - Jim Dooley, Gordon Ramsey (from the Daily Telegraph), Steve Darlow (the book's publisher) and Sean Feast were also there to personalise copies of the book on its first day of issue.
According to reports in the Daily Express, more than 2,000 copies of the book have been sold in the first few weeks of publication, raising more than £20,000 for the upkeep of the memorial in Green Park. The Express reporter described the new book as 'Stunning'. The launch was preceded by a warm up launch at the Aviation Bookshop on Saturday (15th December), with veterans from the local aircrew association.
