Board members from the Bomber Command Museum in Nanton are in Lincoln, England this week helping to dedicate the new British Bomber Command Centre.

Museum Director Karl Kjarsgaard says they've worked tirelessly to assemble and fact check tens of thousands of the names of Canadian Bomber Command crews that will be immortalized at the new centre.

"We're going to save all the stories of all the young men who sacrificed their lives. They're keeping all the records on all these airmen. So, it's going to be a huge memorial. And the place where if you had to go to the epicentre of Bomber Command, a memorial in England, that would be it."

Kjarsgaard says they also provided aluminium from a Canadian Halifax bomber that's being used in a memorial wall by the British.
