      Commemorative Information
      Memorial: RUNNYMEDE MEMORIAL, Surrey, United Kingdom
      Grave Reference/
      Panel Number: Panel 261.

      Location: This Memorial overlooks the River Thames on Cooper's Hill at Englefield Green between Windsor and Egham on the A308, 4 miles from Windsor.

      Historical Information: The Air Forces Memorial at Runnymede commemorates by name over 20,000 airmen who were lost in the Second World War during operations from bases in the United Kingdom and North and Western Europe, and who have no known graves. They came from all parts of the Commonwealth and some were from countries in continental Europe which had been over-run but whose airmen continued to fight in the ranks of the Royal Air Force. The memorial, designed by Sir Edward Maufe, is in the form of a cloister with the names of the dead, grouped by year, inscribed on the Hadene stone reveals and mullions of the narrow windows. On the cloister ceilings are emblazoned the arms of the Commonwealth countries. The cloisters have curved wings, terminating in two look-outs, one facing towards Windsor Castle and the other towards Heathrow Airport. The structure is in Portland stone with roofs of Westmorland green slate.
