Through Struggle to the Stars

Shot with Olympus E510
There's a lot of remembering going on for the 70th anniversary of the start of WWII, so I thought I'd post a picture of a very beautiful memorial to all those airmen from England and abroad that died protecting our freedom. Only this one was put up after WWI.

The inscription reads "In memory of all ranks of the Royal Navy Air Service, Royal Flying Corps, Royal Air Force and those Air Forces from every part of the British Empire who gave their lives in winning victory for their King and Country 1914-1918.I bare you on eagles wings and brought you unto myself."

What a shame the word 'bare' is used incorrectly - on a monument, no less. It should be 'bear'.
