The Lincolnshire Bomber Command Memorial Trust (LBCM), in partnership with the University of Lincoln, has been awarded earmarked funding of £3.1million from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for the creation of the International Bomber Command Centre (IBCC).

The project will, for the first time, provide a central hub for Bomber Command’s heroic and difficult story to be told. This will include presenting the experiences of those who served, supported or were affected by Bomber Command’s campaigns in interactive state-of-the-art digital displays.

Siren FM’s Kellie Pyart has been speaking to Director of the International Bomber Command Centre, Nicky Barr, and asked her about the importance of remembering those who lost their lives in the air missions from Lincolnshire in World War Two.
