The long-overdue memorial to the young men of the wartime Bomber Command will be dedicated and unveiled in the heart of London at midday on Thursday, 28th June, 2012.

Newspapers have been reporting controversy over the BBC's planned coverage of the event. For those wishing to watch this important commemoration on TV, we understand that the BBC News Channel is planning to cover the event live at midday, followed by a special programme, Bomber Command: A Tribute on BBC2 at 5pm.

The British Armed Forces Federation trusts that this includes regional BBC variations.
