The Aims and Objectives of the Aircrew Remembrance Society.
Our Aims include a commitment to the remembrance of fallen airmen of all nations.
We also maintain a commitment to offer support and assistance to relatives, friends and loved ones searching for information, providing as much detailed information and imagery as possible relating to those lost in action or missing, in the hope of providing some form of closure to their search. Our aims are also to preserve and perpetuate their memory in the form of constructed pages of remembrance, as on line memorials, and where ever possible to support and assist in the erection of memorials at relevant crash sites and other locations.
This is combined with a commitment to record, research and preserve where ever possible, any World War II aviation history.
Our Activities over four decades include the following Historic preservation and documentation, generated through the sources listed below.
New written accounts and oral histories, relating to aircrew, aircraft and aviation.
