Welcome to Aircrew Remembrance Memorials Society
(ARMS Charity) Home Page

Please Join our charity today and help us remember thousands of forgotten Boys! All of them largely forgotten and denied their place in our Nations history.

In order to further previous work by the Aircrew Remembrance Society regarding the construction of memorials, and incorporating the preservation of the Finmere control tower it has now decided that this new memorials society should be a charity, in order for us to raise suitable funds to pursue these aims. The society has therefor now registered with HMRC as a charity. The necessary steps to achieve this has now been taken and we have been allocated an acceptance number (061000065582) as notification by the government. We are now therefor recognised as a charity by the government, however to save the tower will be a costly exercise and we therefor envisage considerable cost to be incurred which could be resolved by obtaining grants from various bodies. In order to be eligible for such grants we will need to be registered with the Charities Commission, for an unregistered charity to achieve this we will need to raise £5000 before being accepted as a potential benefactor.

A total of 8,303 Bomber Command crewmen were lost during training in the U.K. Thousands of others were lost training in Fighter Command O.T. U.’s and other R.A. F. Command. The United States Army Air Force also lost many pilots and crews training in the U.K., as did numerous other allied nations.
Hundreds of other front line aircraft crashed returning from operations over Europe, along with many Luftwaffe crews on missions over Great Britain.
These thousands of lost boys with little trace of their sacrifice is the reason for the formation of this society.


The fresh faced photos of these lads look like they are fresh out of school, as they stare back at us from the past.
The remembrance of their sacrifice must NOT be forgotten
